Former South Africa captain Shaun Pollock feels that we won’t get to see MS Dhoni playing again in IPL.
Chennai Super Kings outclassed Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs in the IPL 2021 final on October 15 in Dubai to bag their fourth IPL title.
CSK displayed its resilience in IPL 2021
Dhoni and his men made a stunning comeback after they weren’t able to make it to the playoffs of IPL 2020 last year, the first time in the IPL history.
Dhoni who might not have contributed enough with the bat but had his strategies right on the table and executed them with his astute leadership skills which has never hidden from the cricket world.
The IPL 2022 will see most of the players go under the auctions table as BCCI has planned a mega auction where each team will be able to retain a maximum of three players.
Don’t think we will see MS Dhoni: Shaun Pollock
Pollock said that the recently crowned champions should retain star campaigner Ruturaj Gaikwad along with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and South Africa batter Faf du Plessis.
“You have got to keep Ruturaj Gaikwad. Going forward, I feel he will be absolutely fantastic for them. Jadeja, I would hold on to because he’s been great with the bat and the ball. And I personally don’t think we will see Dhoni, I think he will be retained in a managerial role. I would probably go with Faf, Jadeja, and Gaikwad as the three retentions,” Pollock told Cricbuzz.
The Yellow Army has always relied on the experience of senior players and will be definitely targetting them in the mega auctions.
Dhoni is CSK’s most capped player with 214 matches in 14 seasons of IPL, only Suresh Raina in the team has played 200 matches after him.
