“You have already decided it’s my…,” MS Dhoni recreates ‘definitely not’ moment with Danny Morrison

MS Dhoni hints at staying with Chennai Super Kings, quashes retirement rumors.

In the buildup to the IPL 2023 match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the legendary former Indian captain and current CSK skipper, MS Dhoni, has spoken out about the incessant retirement rumors that have been circulating about him. Dhoni’s comments have given hope to his fans, as he hinted at staying with the Yellow Brigade.

During the traditional coin toss at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, popular commentator Danny Morrison asked Dhoni if he is busy writing the final chapters of his legendary career. Dhoni, who is nicknamed Thala, responded in his usual calm manner, “Well, you have decided it’s my last.” The blockbuster statement by Dhoni has become an instant hit among the fans and followers of the game.



In case anyone has forgotten, Thala Dhoni had famously reassured CSK supporters in 2020 that he would not be retiring from the IPL. However, last season, the player with the most appearances in IPL history had given an indication that he might be considering ending his illustrious career. When Morrison, the renowned commentator, had asked him about retirement last year, Dhoni had replied, “You will surely see me in a yellow jersey. Whether it’s this yellow jersey or a different one, you’ll have to wait and see.”

As CSK resumed their rivalry with Lucknow Super Giants in the 16th edition of the cash-rich league, Dhoni’s statement has given a ray of hope to his fans, who are eagerly waiting to see the legend play more games. It remains to be seen whether Dhoni decides to continue playing or hangs up his boots at the end of the season.
