MS Dhoni to stay in CSK for one or two years: CSK CEO
Since Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, there have been speculations that he might well hang his boots in the IPL as well. While his stocks have gone down as a batsman, MS Dhoni still continues to impress with his presence on the field.
As speculations continue to rife, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan has confirmed that Dhoni can continue for a couple of more years.
“He can continue for another one or two years with CSK. He is fully fit, trains a lot. Don`t see any reason why he should stop,” Viswanathan said.
“As far we are concerned, we are happy for what he is doing for CSK. It is not just about his captaincy or the fact that he is a guide or a leader as the most experienced player. We feel he is still good and brings value as a player to the side. He has been a finisher and is doing that for us,” added Viswanathan.
MS Dhoni-led CSK are currently placed 2nd in the now-postponed IPL 2021. They will look to continue the good job when the tournament resumes in September in the UAE.
