Chennai: Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni said he hopes to play his last T20 match with Chennai Super Kings. Dhoni revealed this on Saturday at ‘The Champions Call” event. The event was organized to mark Chennai Super Kings’ fourth IPL victory.
“I have always planned my cricket. My last international game on home turf was in Ranchi. Hopefully, my last T20 will be in Chennai. Whether next year or in five years, we do not know,” Dhoni said during an event in Chennai.
Also discussing CSK and IPL, Dhoni stated: “I think it is a great platform where I can thank all the ex-cricketers, my fellow cricketers, and also the BCCI administrators for their contribution to cricket. Thanks a lot for your effort. Cricket has changed over the years, but because of the effort, we are here, and cricket will keep moving forward.”
Dhoni further said that CSK’s fan following held the team going even during the two years when they missed the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“Overall, it is the fan following which CSK has got. It goes much beyond Tamil Nadu. It goes beyond the borders of India. Wherever we play — be it in Bengaluru, Johannesburg, or Dubai, we have support. Even during the lean patch, we missed two years of IPL, and that was the period CSK was most talked about on social media,” he added.
