After a defeat against New Zealand in semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019, the men-in-blue are set to travel West Indies for a full series. The participation of Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah looks unclear. However, MS Dhoni's inclusion still surrounds some questions. With fans eagerly waiting for Dhoni to come out and shut his critics, the Chennai Super Kings official came with a delightful statement for MS Dhoni's fans.
Amidst all the retirement speculation, MS Dhoni is set to lead the CSK in the IPL 2020 as well. A top franchise official confirmed the news while speaking to Mumbai Mirror. “Whatever may be the speculation, he will play for us next year,” he said. This comes as a news to be heard for the Indian fans as they haven’t seen the end of the legendary cricketer yet.
MS Dhoni though is most likely to call it a day as far as his international career is concerned. According to the reports, he is unlikely to be the part of the squad for the upcoming West Indies tour where Team India will play three T20Is, as many ODIs and a couple of Test matches. The likes of Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are also likely to be rested for the tour while a full strength team will be picked for the Test series.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli's men are stuck in Manchester due to unavailability to tickets. Virat mentioned in the press conference that he doesn't have any idea about Dhoni's retirement plans.
