On 15 November 2022, the stage is set for the Indian T20 League 2023 as all franchises are going to submit their final list of retained and released players. All teams are preparing to make a competitive group ahead of the next season. Chennai are not an exception also as MS Dhoni will look to do well after last year’s disastrous season.

In the last season, Chennai finished in the ninth position with four wins out of 14 games. So, Chennai fans will hope for a better show from MS Dhoni and his men this time around. But, now a report has gone viral that MS Dhoni could play his last ever Indian T20 League in the next season.

Here is the tweet:

MS Dhoni was seen having batting practice sessions in the last few months at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) academy

As per reports to the Telegraph, MS Dhoni will retire after IPL 2023. He might work with a specialized set of Indian players. It indicated that Dhoni will play his last Indian T20 League in the next season.  After that, he will be back in team India to work with some players in the upcoming years. The Board are keen to use the experience of Dhoni.

So, the Board might ask him to work with certain players in the T20 setup for bringing a fearless attitude in major tournaments. However, ahead of the next season, it will be shocking news for the Chennai fans as MS Dhoni has been their charismatic skipper all these years. Under his captaincy, they managed to win four titles so far. However, he was with the Indian team as the mentor in the last edition of the 2021 20-20 World Cup. 

But, India had a disappointing World Cup as they got crashed out of the group stage only. In recent months, Dhoni was seen having net sessions at the JSCA academy. In the last edition of the tournament, he did not manage many significant contributions to the team. So, this time around, MS Dhoni will look to help the franchise both as an individual player and leader.
