Former Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Dwayne Bravo said that skipper MS Dhoni can prolong his IPL career due to the new Impact Player rule. Dhoni led CSK to a 15-run win over defending champions Gujarat Titans at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai to qualify for the final of IPL 2023.
“100 percent (will he return to play for CSK in 2024?), especially with the Impact Player rule. He can keep prolonging his career. We bat really deep. I think the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube, these guys make a huge difference. So you don’t require much from MS. But his ability to keep us calm while the team is under pressure is unmatched,” said Bravo.
Speaking to popular commentator Harsha Bhogle after the game, Dhoni shed light on his retirement plans, saying he has ample time to decide after the end of this IPL, insisting that he will always be there for CSK.
“I don’t know. I have 8-9 months to decide. The small auction will be around December. So why to take that headache right now? I have ample time to decide. But, I will always be there for CSK whether it’s in the playing form or sitting somewhere outside,” Dhoni told Bhogle.
