MS Dhoni’s last dance at Wankhede: Fans likely to get last glimpse of 2011 WC heroics

MS Dhoni might walk out to play at the Wankhede stadium for the last time in the IPL as MI take on CSK on Sunday

Perhaps, for the one last time, the crowd at Wankhede stadium will get to see the legendary MS Dhoni in action on Sunday! There’s no doubt about the cloud that surrounds MSD’s future in the IPL, the only format that the star is a part of in terms of playing active cricket. Ever since the 2019 World Cup, Dhoni’s retirement has been the eye of the storm in each season.

Will we see the last of Dhoni at Wankhede?

In 2022, one thought it would be Dhoni’s last IPL edition. He came back stronger in 2023 to help CSK life the IPL trophy for the fifth time, equaling MI’s record. Once again he was asked the same question on retirement, and despite wearing knee braces and a colling pack, a confident ex-Indian skipper said definitely once again. And here he is in IPL 2024, having relinquished the captaincy to Ruturaj Gaikwad, once again leaving fans wondering if this is the last time they will see the legend!
