A senior official of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is amazed after MS Dhoni has taken retirement from international cricket.
As Dhoni dreamt of making comeback to international cricket by featuring in the World Cup 2020 and bidding farewell to cricket forever, but as it has now been shifted to another year, the veteran wicket-keeping batsman might walk away after winning IPL 2020 trophy.
It could be the last IPL for MS Dhoni if CSK win: Reports
“No idea where that one came from. But that’s MSD, isn’t it,” a senior CSK official told The Times of India.
“T20 World Cup would’ve been ideal, but considering that’s not happening now, he’ll want to walk away with an IPL trophy for CSK,” those tracking developments revealed.
“That was the original plan. He would prepare for the T20 World Cup by way of participating in the IPL and then go forward from there. All of that got disrupted by COVID. The commercial arrangements were due to arrive at a certain inflection point post the T20 World Cup and that would’ve eventually seen his exit anyway,” revealed sources.
“MS can be expected to become part of the game’s administration at some level”, revealed sources to the news outlet.
“All these years have allowed him to understand the game at multiple levels, from its operations and logistics to administration, the finances and all. He’ll be a ready product to take charge of the game’s administration at one level or the other, once he relieves himself from all cricketing responsibilities as a player,” the sources added.
The topic of his retirement is finally closed now as he has said goodbye to international cricket along with his fellow, Suresh Raina.
