Before the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), legendary Indian cricketer and captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, responded cheekily to questions about his impending retirement.
At the toss, Dhoni was questioned by commentator Danny Morrison about his future as he is rumored to be playing in his final IPL season.

Danny Morrison said, “This wonderful swansong tour, you’re last,” at the toss. How do you feel about it? At the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, after selecting to field against the Lucknow Super Giants after winning the toss, Dhoni said, “You have decided it is my last IPL, not me.”
The jovial India skipper swiftly denied any suggestions that he was considering retiring while still leaving his options open.

Dhoni has had a distinguished career in the IPL, scoring 5052 runs at an average of 39.47 in 243 games. While batting lower in the order, he has accumulated 24 half-centuries, 348 fours, and 237 sixes. His greatest score to date is 84*.
Along with a two-season stint with the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant from 2016–17, Dhoni has been associated with CSK since the Rich-Cash League’s inaugural season. Every time he enters the crease, a sizable yellow army that is cheering him on erupts into applause.
This IPL season, Captain Cool seemed more at ease and assured. He is completing games in the manner that his followers have grown accustomed to over time. He has played down the order on a 74.00 average and scored 74 runs in nine games. He has already hit eight sixes.
CSK might conclude the day at the top of the league with a convincing victory, but they would need to do so against LSG, who are also vying for the top spot. As the playoff race heats up in a crowded league table, LSG only needs to win the match.
