Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni has confirmed that his last T20 game will be in Chennai but said he does not know "whether it is next year or in five years’ time”.
Even though his future with CSK in the Indian Premier League (IPL) remains uncertain, the former India captain promised the CSK fans that whenever he retires, he would try to make sure that his last game is in Chennai.
In an event held in Chennai to celebrate the team’s IPL 2021 title win, Dhoni said, "I will think about it, there is a lot of time, right now we are just in November. IPL 2022 will be played in April.”
He added, "I have always planned my cricket. You know the last game that I played, was in Ranchi. (In) the ODI version, the last home game was at my hometown in Ranchi. So hopefully, my last T20, it will be in Chennai. Whether it's next year, or in five years' time, we don't think about it.”
Taking it to Twitter, the official handle of CSK shared a brief video of the speech and wrote, "A promise from #Thala..."
It may be mentioned, after he captained CSK to a fourth IPL triumph in Dubai last month, Dhoni had remained coy on his future with the team.
