The captain of the Chennai Super Kings hasn’t ruled out playing in another season of the Indian Premier League and stated “it would be a gift” from him to his supporters who have made him emotional with their devotion. However, MS Dhoni isn’t sure and wants to observe how his body responds over the next 6-7 months.
After bad weather prevented play on Sunday, the legendary former India captain guided CSK to a record-tying fifth IPL championship on Monday by defeating Gujarat Titans in the rescheduled final.
In order to help CSK reach the revised (DLS) goal of 171 in 15 overs off the final ball and secure a five-wicket victory, Ravindra Jadeja maintained his composure and scored 15 out off 6 balls.
In their given 20 overs, GT achieved 214/4 as a result of Sai Sudharsan’s scorching 96 off 47 balls.
The 41-year-old Dhoni offered his opinion on the widely debated issue, “Is this his last IPL?” during the post-game presentation. Circumstantial factors make this the ideal time to make my retirement announcement. The easiest thing would be to leave this place, but given the kind of support I have received, it would be harder to train hard for nine months and try to play in another IPL, Dhoni remarked.
Since the start of the Indian Premier League this year, Dhoni has been the centre of attention, and in a fitting way, the captain concluded the tournament with a record-tying fifth championship.

Below is the post-match interview of MS Dhoni:
Dhoni remarked of the game, “Every trophy is great, but what is unique about the IPL is that every crunch game requires you to be ready. There were mistakes made today, and the bowling department didn’t perform well, but the batting department relieved their burden today. “I do get frustrated, it’s human, but I try to put myself in their position since everyone handles pressure in a different way. You shouldn’t be concerned because Ajinkya (Rahane) and a few others have experience. “Anyone who is unclear can always ask,” he said.
