There were speculations about Dhoni ever since India lost the World Cup semis last year against New Zealand by 18 runs. With the announcement, Dhoni – arguably the most successful skipper to have led India – puts a rest to all the retirement rumours.
According to a TOI report, it is believed that Dhoni made the decision after the T20 World Cup which was scheduled to take place this year was postponed due to the pandemic. Both Dhoni and Raina will be seen in action for CSK in IPL 13 which will kick off from September 19th. The final will be held on November 10. Only three venues will be used for the T20 tournament to avoid excessive travelling of players to ensure their safety.
