MS Dhoni responds to Danny Morrison's "swansong" comment; fans go crazy
Several speculations have been doing rounds regarding the retirement of MS Dhoni since the start of the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). MS Dhoni has received exceptional affection from his fans all around the country everywhere he has reached to play this season.
It is expected that IPL 2023 will be the last of Dhoni at the stage of the IPL. The legendary captain has himself given several statements throughout the course of the season, which indicate that his retirement might well be around the corner.
No wonder his supporters and well-wishers have filled the stands with the yellow jersey even in the away games of the four-time champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2023. MS Dhoni has also thanked his fans for coming in numbers in cities like Bangalore and Jaipur.
While retirement is inevitable, MS Dhoni’s fans would want him to continue playing as long as possible. The fans crave to get a little glimpse of their favourite sportsperson MS Dhoni, who had already retired from international cricket back in 2020.
MS Dhoni provides a massive update on his retirement plans
MS Dhoni is known to keep his secrets close to him and not reveal his cards. It is the reason why the viewers always keep guessing about his next move.
However, MS Dhoni gave a massive update on his retirement plans during the toss at Lucknow ahead of the game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). This revelation is completely contrasting with what Dhoni had been indicating earlier.
During the toss, Danny Morrison jokingly asked if he was enjoying his final season in the league. MS Dhoni, known for his witty replies, came up with another such reply.
“You've decided that it's my last season, not me (laughs),” stated MS Dhoni to Morrison.
This news has pleased Dhoni’s fans all around the world. They took to their social media accounts to express their happiness.
