MS Dhoni is the most successful captain in the history of the IPL as he has guided the CSK franchise to most wins. Besides that, the Yellow Army won as many as five titles, which is indeed a great achievement. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, CSK beat Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023 final to win the fifth title.

Meanwhile, the fans are curious to know whether MS Dhoni will play IPL 2024 because he underwent knee surgery. The CSK captain himself broke the silence as he gave an update on whether he will play in the upcoming season.

“Knee has survived the operation, going through the rehab patch, the doctor told me you would feel much better by November. But no problem in day-to-day routine,” said the 42-year-old recently.

Earlier, after winning the IPL, Dhoni said, “Circumstantially if you see, this is the best time to announce my retirement. But the amount of love and affection I have been shown wherever I have been this year, the easy thing would be for me to say “Thank you very much”, but the tough thing for me is to work hard for another 9 months and come back and play at least 1 more season of IPL. A lot depends on the body, I have 6-7 months to decide. It will be more like a gift from my side, it’s not easy for me but that’s a gift. The way they’ve shown their love and affection, I think that’s something I need to do for them.”
