If the rules permit, MS Dhoni will be the first player to be retained by Chennai Super Kings. Dhoni stated that it is up to the BCCI and how they shape the rules for the auction to be held next season.
Dhoni led his team CSK to victory in the IPL 2021 and lifted the fourth IPL Trophy held at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in the final. CSK batted first and set a target of 192 for 3 KKR could only manage to put 165 runs for 9 on the board in their allotted 20 overs.
There will be two new teams for the next season of IPL 2022.
According to a source, CSK will not do anything without Dhoni. The team performed exceptionally well under the leadership of the 40 year old wicketkeeper- batsman. Any team would love to have a player like him.
