“No one has said that this would be his final year. At least, he hasn’t. Hopefully, he will play more. We don’t know any such thing, we want him to play as much as he can,” he told News India Sports.
“He knows when to retire, we saw it when he did in Tests and international cricket. No one else knows. I just hope he continues to play, it’s a privilege to play under him. It has been a dream to play with him. He’s in good touch as well, you will see that when he bats in the IPL this year.”
In the 2022 edition of the tournament, ahead of the team’s last group game, MS Dhoni hinted at this possibility. He mentioned that he will be returning next season to express his appreciation to fans all over India since the Indian Premier League is set to be held in 12 different cities in 2023.
