RP Singh and Suresh Raina shared their insights on the speculation surrounding MS Dhoni’s potential continuation in playing beyond IPL 2024.

As the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) progresses toward its midway point, fans have been treated to thrilling encounters. The legendary MS Dhoni is in action for his 17th IPL season, showcasing impressive performances both with the bat and behind the stumps for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

After undergoing knee surgery last year, doubts loomed over Dhoni’s presence in IPL 2024. Nevertheless, he displayed remarkable resilience and determination to recover fully and return to the field for what is anticipated to be his final season as a cricketer. Despite being 42 years old, Dhoni has shown no signs of decline, contributing valuable cameos for CSK and exhibiting his exceptional skills behind the stumps. With his consistent displays, fans are beginning to speculate whether the former India captain can extend his playing career beyond IPL 2024.

During a commentary session, former India teammates of Dhoni, RP Singh and Suresh Raina, were questioned about their thoughts on whether IPL 2024 marked the end of the legendary wicketkeeper-batsman’s career.

It doesn’t appear to be his final season,” remarked RP Singh, a member of India’s T20 World Cup-winning squad in 2007, while providing commentary for JioCinema.

Following Singh’s statement, he would then turn to Raina and inquire about his viewpoint on the matter. The left-handed batsman, a crucial member of India’s ODI World Cup-winning team in 2011, concurred with the former left-arm pacer. With a succinct one-word response, Raina asserted that Dhoni would indeed participate in next year’s IPL.

Khelenge (Will play),” affirmed Raina, who shared many years playing alongside Dhoni for the Men in Yellow.

The influential cricketer entrusted the captaincy of CSK to Ruturaj Gaikwad before the season commenced. While playing as a specialist wicketkeeper-batsman, he is observed offering occasional guidance to the young captain on the field.

In IPL 2024, Dhoni has scored 59 runs from four innings, facing just 25 balls with an impressive strike rate of 236. He has hit four fours and six sixes without being dismissed yet in the tournament. Chennai currently holds the No. 3 position on the points table, having secured four wins and two losses from six games. Their next match is against Lucknow Super Giants on Friday, April 19.
