Before leaving for Chennai, Dhoni tested negative for coronavirus.
A couple of days back, CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan has rubbished all that claims and claimed that he may also feature in the IPL next year.
“Yes. We can expect MS Dhoni to be part of both (IPL 2020 and 2021) and probably for even the next year. 2022,” he said.
“I am getting updates through the media only, saying he has been training in Jharkhand in indoor nets. But we don’t have to worry about the skipper, boss. We don’t worry about him at all. He knows his responsibilities and he will take care of himself and the team,” he added further.
IPL 13 starts from September 19 and the final will take place on November 10. Three venues will be used throughout the tournament in a bid to minimise traveling for players amid the pandemic.
