Matthew Hayden On MS Dhoni’s Retirement
Retired Australian and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batter Matthew Hayden believes IPL 2023 will be the season when Chennai fans celebrate the most. As captain, MS Dhoni may end his career at the end of the tournament. For the past month, MSD has been preparing for the championship. Remember that Dhoni does not participate in any other cricket tournament besides the IPL. He is no longer playing first-class or international cricket. He will turn 42 on July 7, and at that age, it will be difficult for him to keep playing continuous cricket. Even playing once a year becomes difficult for the aging body.
Dhoni stated last year, ahead of CSK’s final league match, that he would like to call it a day while playing for the home supporters. With the league being played mostly abroad in the last three years, Dhoni would like to win his fifth and final trophy as captain of CSK before retiring from the sport. With Dhoni playing in his final league, Hayden believes this could be the best season ever for spectators and the franchise.
“See, CSK is well known for doing exceptional things. Consider taking their Indian Premier League gap, which has been unfortunate for the past two years. They weren’t playing, and they returned the following year to win the IPL, which was very unusual. And they have a strategy. MS Dhoni has a way of reinvigorating, revamping, and giving the team a completely different look and feel. Even though it has a great reputation for having complete trust in a few players and having retained the majority of its players “Hayden stated to Star Sports.
“So, for MS Dhoni, I assume this year in specific will be a year to remember. It’s the end, I believe, of MS Dhoni’s legacy and he’ll want to go out in style with his spectators who want him to leave in style as well,” he continued.
On March 31, 2023, CSK will face defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) in their first IPL 2023 match
If this happens to be true and MS Dhoni bids his finally goodbye after this year’s edition of IPL fans of the sport across the globe will feel the void created when the legend walks off the cricket pitch one last time. Captain cool the most successful captain for India and in the history of IPL will be missed and it is not incorrect to say that their won’t be another one like him.
The world of cricket watches in anticipation to know if MS Dhoni continues post IPL 2023 or hangs his boots.
