Will Dhoni return for IPL 2023? – MS Dhoni wants to play his last IPL match in front of home fans at the Chepauk stadium like he played his last home match in Ranchi.

“Hopefully, my last T20 will be in Chennai. Whether it’s next year, or in five years’ time, we don’t really know,” MS Dhoni said during a CSK event earlier this year.

With Dhoni keeping his future a mystery, CSK have not even held a discussion on the next CSK captain.

“There is no question of deciding the next captain. We have a great bunch of players and when MS decides to call it quits, we will take a call. We have not even discussed that situation yet,” the CSK official said.
