Although it hasn’t been confirmed officially, it appears that MS Dhoni is planning to retire after playing in the IPL 2023 tournament. Dhoni, who is a wicketkeeper and batter, had expressed his desire to retire after playing the final match at the Chepauk stadium. For the 2023 IPL season, the BCCI has reverted back to the home-away format, and the Chennai Super Kings team has started their training sessions in Chennai with most of the squad members in attendance. Dhoni was observed hitting sixes during the training session and appears to be in excellent physical shape.
