MS Dhoni confirms he will play for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023
Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni confirmed on Friday that he will play in the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) upcoming season.
On Friday, CSK’s 40-year-old top batsman revealed this during the toss against Rajasthan Royals. The game versus Rajasthan Royals is CSK’s final IPL match of the season. CSK, which has won the IPL four times with Dhoni as captain, has failed to qualify for the playoffs this season.
Asked if the fans will see him in the yellow jersey again after this IPL season, Dhoni said “it will it be unfair to not play in Chennai and say thank you”.
“Definitely. It’s a simple reason.. it will be unfair to not play in Chennai and say thank you. Mumbai is one place, whereas as a team and as an individual, I have got a lot of love and affection. But it wouldn’t be nice to the CSK fans,” MS Dhoni said.
He anticipated that the teams would visit different venues during the IPL next year.
“And also, hopefully, next year there will be an opportunity where the teams will be travelling. So it will be alike thank you to all the different places where we will be playing games at different venues. Whether it will be my last year or not that’s a big question. Because you know we can’t really predict something two years down the line. But definitely, I’ll be working hard to come back strong next year,” he added.
Y. E. S!

MS Dhoni had stepped down as CSK’s captain in the ongoing IPL 2022, handing over the reigns to all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. This fueled speculation that this would be Dhoni’s final IPL season. After Jadeja stepped down midway through the league, Dhoni was reappointed as captain.
