Dhoni has been CSK captain since the inception of the IPL in 2008.
Dhoni, for his part, had given clear indications that he will be back to CSK’s yellow brigade in IPL 2020 at the end of IPL 2019. “Hopefully yes,” Dhoni had said after losing the IPL 2019 final to Mumbai Indians.
Dhoni, however, has not even spoken to his Indian teammates about his future. When asked about Dhoni’s retirement after semi-final exit from the World Cup, Virat Kohli had informed that there was no talks in the dressing room.
According to reports, the ex-India captain has not even confirmed his participation for India’s next tour to West Indies, in which Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are certain to be rested.
