This was stated by former Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar MS Dhoni can return as a player and captain for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) next IPL season if he wants. He added that if not as a player, the legendary Ram goalkeeper could take on the role of coach or head coach.
Chennai has had a disastrous IPL 2022 season, winning just four of its 12 games so far. Their campaign was overshadowed by the controversy over the captain. Ravindra Jadea was transferred to the lead at the beginning of the season, but Donnie was re-appointed captain in the middle of the issue.
With hopes for the playoffs for the end of the season, CSK will look forward to building a team for the future. What role can the legendary Donnie play for the franchise in the future, Akhtar said Sportskeeda:
“Obviously he can continue to play next season if he wants. But if he doesn’t want to continue playing, he can return as a mentor or even a head coach. That wouldn’t be a bad role for him. It all depends on Donnie. He is an asset. He’s either on the team or with the team. “
Sharing his views on the captain’s office fiasco, Rawalpindi Express claims that Chennai’s leadership does not look so serious, which is why the issue is escalating to such an extent. he expressed the opinion:
“This time the CSK leadership seemed frivolous. Why the captaincy went to Judea, we do not know. But they must return with a clear mind next season.
Jadeja recently left CSK’s bio-bubble amid rumors of a rift between the all-rounder and management. However, the official announcement of the franchise on the matter states that Jadeja was released because they did not want to risk further injury to his ribs.
“Dhoni can just play another song and announce his retirement” – Shoaib Akhtar
Asked if he thought Donnie would announce his retirement from IPL after the current season, Akhtar said no one could read what was going on in the mind of the former Indian captain. He commented:
Donnie can just play another song and announce his retirement. One really cannot predict what one can do. He is just such a person. If he suddenly feels that he has to retire, he will do it. Honestly, it’s time for a few players. There is no “if” or “but” in the cricket franchise.
Donnie has announced his retirement from international cricket in 2020 with a social media post that includes a montage capturing his career in India and a classic Bollywood song playing alongside him.
