As Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowed out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, several experts, cricketers and fans are speculating that veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni will not play in IPL 2025.

Earlier, RCB star batsman Virat Kohli had predicted that he may not get another chance to play with Dhoni anymore.

Like Kohli, legendary Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram has also admitted that Dhoni might bid farewell to IPL cricket after CSK bowed out of the playoff race.

“I have a gut feeling that Dhoni will be done after this. Players like him come in a lifetime, it all depends on him,” said Akram during an interaction.

“Dhoni’s legacy is not just that 110m six, it’s something else. He has done a lot for Indian cricket. He brought the mindset. As a captain, he brought calmness, played captaincy knocks, the way he became a finisher, the way he has groomed players, and showed consistency, so this will be his legacy,” said the former Pakistan great.
