Watch: What MS Dhoni Promises Chennai Super Kings Fans On His "Last T20"!!


MS Dhoni’s decision to continue with CSK remains uncertain revealed by Dhoni himself on Saturday, in an event held in Chennai to celebrate the team's IPL 2021 title win, that no decision had been taken yet on him continuing with CSK next season. "I will think about it, there is a lot of time, right now we are just in November. IPL 2022 will be played in April," Dhoni said.

However, the former India captain told them that whenever he retires, he would try to make sure that his last game is in Chennai.

"I have always planned my cricket. You know the last game that I played, was in Ranchi. (In) the ODI version, the last home game was at my hometown in Ranchi. So hopefully, my last T20 will be in Chennai. Whether it's next year, or in five years' time, we don't think about it," Dhoni said while addressing the attendees at Saturday's event.

"A promise from #Thala..." tweeted CSK while sharing a brief video of the speech.

Earlier, after captaining the fourth IPL triumph in Dubai last month, Dhoni had remained coy on his future with the team.

"Again I've said it before, it depends on BCCI. With two new teams coming in, we have to decide what is good for CSK. It's not about me being there in top-three or four. It's about making a strong core to ensure the franchise doesn't suffer. The core group, we have to have a hard look to see who can contribute for the next 10 years," Dhoni told host broadcaster Star Sports at the post-match presentation.
