CSK Skipper MS Dhoni, IPL 2023: The 2023 IPL season could be MS Dhoni’s final, with the CSK skipper previously indicating that he would prefer to say goodbye to the fans in Chennai before retiring from the league.

Fans are awaiting MS Dhoni‘s appearance in the IPL 2023 as the former Indian cricketer continues to practice for the T20 tournament. The only platform where Dhoni can be seen in full action is the IPL.
