MS Dhoni Should Continue To Play Until He’s 50+: Legends League Cricket CEO

During a conversation with TOI.com, Legends League Cricket co-founder and CEO Raman Raheja revealed the idea behind the tournament. He said that fans want players like MS Dhoni to play for 50-plus years. So the idea of the tournament was to extend players’ careers.

“We have more than 100 crore cricket fans in our country and at least half of that outside of India as well. So when you have such a large population, and we grew up looking at our heroes, we never want them to retire. We say Dhoni should continue to play till he’s 50+ or maybe more than that”, he said.

“So it’s always hard when somebody like that retires, fans feel bad. So the idea was that they could extend their playing career and given that today’s cricket has become very competitive with youngsters and physical fitness coming up, the average age of a cricketer is actually coming down”, he further added.
