MS Dhoni is undoubtedly one of the most popular cricketers of the present times and he is loved and admired by not only aspiring young cricketers but his contemporaries as well.
The IPL 2020 was not at all good for MS Dhoni and his team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as they were able to win only 6 matches out of 14 matches they have played and as a result, CSK didn’t manage to enter the play-offs for the first time in the history of the IPL. Though Dhoni didn’t even bat in his last match of the IPL 2020 which was against Kings XI Punjab, still he was trending on the social media networks because of the two words that he said at the toss.
There were some rumours that the IPL 2020 may be Dhoni’s last IPL as he has already retired from the international cricket and many opposition players were taking his signed jersey from him which further strengthened the rumours.
However at the toss when Danny Morrison asked the captain cool whether this is going to be his last match in the yellow ever, Dhoni said, “definitely not”.

In the presentation ceremony which took place after the match, Dhoni said that other cricketers may be thinking that he is retiring this year from the IPL because of which they may be asking for his jersey.
As far as the match is concerned, CSK defeated KXIP by 9 wickets and with this defeat, the journey of KXIP also ended in the IPL 2020. CSK won the toss in the match which was played Sheikh Zayed stadium and asked KXIP to bat first. The Punjab team managed only 153 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in the 20 overs, thanks to the blasting innings of Deepak Hooda who scored 62 run for which he played only 30 balls.
CSK openers ensured that their team did not face any problem in winning the match as Ruturaj Gaikwad played a brilliant innings of 62 and Faf du Plessis scored 48 in 34 balls. Ambati Rayudu also supported his team by scoring 30 runs and the match ended with 7 balls remaining.
Well, it is really great news for fans of Dhoni as they will get to see Thala playing once again for CSK.
