Dhoni played the entire IPL 2023 season with a heavily strapped left knee. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) CEO Kasi Viswanathan recently shared that Dhoni has not disclosed his future plans and will likely reveal them directly to the fans. There were speculations that it would be Dhoni’s final season, but he strongly hinted at his return for the 2024 edition after leading the franchise to their 5th title. Kasi expressed his lack of knowledge regarding Dhoni’s future plans, but confidently stated that the veteran player is on track to participate in the entire IPL season. Dhoni was spotted playing pickleball with Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant after the conclusion of the IPL 2024 Auction in Dubai. Despite facing challenges with his batting performance, Dhoni’s captaincy has been the X-factor for the Yellow Army. Viswanathan disclosed that the auction unfolded as intended, with the inclusion of Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman being advantageous on the Chennai wicket. The 2024 edition of the IPL is expected to commence on March 22nd.
