‘Definitely not’- not at all. Mahendra Singh Dhoni repeated this thing twice on Sunday. Once before the match starts and after the second match starts. When Dhoni was asked if this was his last match for the Yellow Jersey i.e. Chennai Super Kings, he said- “Definitely Not” i.e. the captain of Chennai Super Kings made it clear that he is ready to play in next year’s IPL. Dhoni said, “He will undoubtedly play in the next IPL which is just a few months away.”
Dhoni is giving his jerseys to the players of the opposition team this season. On Sunday, Chennai Super Kings ended their journey with a win by defeating Kings XI Punjab by 9 wickets. With this defeat, the team led by Lokesh Rahul’s dream of reaching the IPL 2020 playoffs remained unfulfilled.
During the match presentation, Harsha Bhogle asked Dhoni, ‘It is good to see that you have some jerseys left. Everyone wants to take a jersey from you. ‘
To this Dhoni replied, ‘Maybe they feel that I am retiring now. I have retired from international cricket and they are thinking that I am retiring from IPL also.
“Definitely not ‘”, isn’t it? Bhogle asked the next question. Bhogle repeated the reference to Danny Morrison’s answer during the toss. And Dhoni then said, “Definitely not”.
The Chennai Super Kings, a three-time champions, have been eliminated from the IPL for the first time in the league stage.
Dhoni said, “There are only a few months left in the next IPL and hopefully there will be no lockdown till then.” In such a situation, you will get a better opportunity to prepare.
Dhoni said after the last match, “We will have to make some changes in our core group and prepare for the next 10 years.”
Dhoni said, “At the beginning of the IPL, we formed a team which gave very good services. Now the time has come that you need to make some changes and hand over the command to the next generation.
Dhoni said, ‘We will come back strongly. We are known for this. It was a tough fight. We made many mistakes. The last four matches were exactly what we wanted. ‘
