After the victory of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League, the team Captain M.S. Dhoni gave a treat to his fans.
There were speculations that this edition would be the last match of M.S., after the final match of the IPL, he would announce his retirement. After winning the match against the Gujarat Titans, at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, reporters once again asked M.S. Dhoni the million dollar question.
Reacting to the question, the CSK Captain said, “Looking for an answer? Circumstantially if you see, this is the best time to announce my retirement. But the amount of love and affection I have been shown wherever I have been this year, the easy thing would be for me to say “Thank you very much,” but the tough thing for me is to work hard for another 9 months and come back and play at least 1 more season of IPL. A lot depends on the body, I have 6-7 months to decide. It will be more like a gift from my side, it’s not easy for me but that’s a gift. The way they’ve shown their love and affection, I think that’s something I need to do for them.”
At the age of 41, playing a Twenty 20 series is not an easy task, but M.S. Dhoni, who received a huge amount of love from fans, said he would work hard and get back. It is to be noted, after announcing retirement from all forms of cricket, fans get to see Dhoni perform on field in action during IPLs only.
For M.S. Dhoni fans, yesterday’s CSK V/S GT match was less about the CSK team, but more about M.S. Dhoni. He was the star of the event, and was showered with love after the maiden victory against the Hardik Pandya led Gujarat Titans.
Celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Akshay Kumar and others tweeted and showered love on M.S. Dhoni, who played a very important role in the win of CSK.
The CSK scored 171 runs off 4 wickets in 15 overs, against the Gujarat Titans, which scored 214 runs off 5 wickets in 20 overs. As per sources, the overs for the CSK was reduced to 15, amid cloudy weather, and the target for the CSK was set to 171 runs. Winning by 5 wickets, CSK lifted the IPL 2023 Trophy for the fifth time, and is now equal to the win of Mumbai Indians, who also won five times during the IPL seasons.
