MS Dhoni will possibly be playing his last Indian Premier League season. Although the team could not do well in the last IPL 2022 edition, the captain would want a roaring comeback from his team in IPL 2023. He is expected to keep wickets and lead the side in IPL 2023.

So far, the 41-year-old keeper has garnered 4978 runs in 234 IPL appearances at an average of 39.20, with 24 fifties. For CSK, he had scored 4404 runs in 204 matches averaging 40.4. However, the last few editions have been a little average for MS Dhoni – the batter. He scored runs at an average of 33.14, 16.28, and 25.00 in the 2022, 2021, and 2020 seasons. He is expected to play all matches of the IPL 2023 season unless injured.
