MS Dhoni confirms to play IPL next year
During the post-match interaction last night, when asked about his future in the game, Dhoni referred to his knee. The 42-year-old stated that he couldn't provide a definite answer for the next six or seven months. Over a period of time, the greatest white-ball captain of India has been struggling with persistent injuries and minor ailments now.
Dhoni said on the sidelines of the IPL 2023 final, “If you see circumstantially this is the best time for me to announce retirement. But the amount of love and affection I’ve been shown wherever I’ve been this year, the easy thing for me would be to say, ‘Thank you very much’. But the tough thing for me is to work hard for another nine months and come back and play at least one more season of IPL. But a lot depends on the body, I have six-seven months to decide and it will be more like a gift from my side.”
