MS Dhoni potential retirement

While MS Dhoni hasn’t made any official announcements, his emotional response has ignited speculation. Retirement would see him end his IPL career on a high note, potentially as the joint-most successful captain with 5243 runs in 264 matches and the highest win percentage.

Dhoni himself had previously stated his desire to play on in 2020, expressing a sense of gratitude towards his fans. This season’s performance, though marked by CSK’s fifth-place finish, showcased his continued fighting spirit.
