Chennai Super Kings CEO Hope Ms Dhoni doesn’t quit CSK as he did for International cricket
The Indian Premier League is scheduled to go live from 19 September. Both the departments are interested in the planning for the extravaganza with just over a month to go for the same. But the surprise news came during the preparation when the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni resigned from International cricket.
He hasn’t played any international game since last year, and the news of his retirement broke out when everyone was eager to finally see him in the IPL that could have set the stage for his international comeback. Yet the Chennai franchise is not at all concerned about his decision.
In an interview, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told the Times of India that the 39-year-old could play for the IPL club as long as he wishes. The former wicket-keeper has just retired from International cricket and can be seen playing for the Yellow Army next month. Viswanathan has also confirmed that management wants to keep their skipper even after IPL 2021 as well.
Viswanathan also voiced his opinion on the reports that if CSK wins the title this time, Dhoni might even retire from IPL. He hoped Dhoni wouldn’t leave CSK as quietly as he retired from the International circuit.
The decision of Dhoni shocked the entire cricket brotherhood as he trained for CSK. No one had a clue about the big decision. Viswanathan also said no one knew Dhoni would retire during the first training session and owner N Srinivasan was the one who notified him.
In the former captain’s style, Dhoni’s decision was entirely laid down. CSK’s CEO revealed how, after telling him the story, Dhoni somehow managed to conceal his emotions.
