MS Dhoni To Play Till IPL 2026? Here Is The Big Statement From The Former Cricketer

Former Indian batter Kris Srikkanth expressed admiration for ex-Indian and CSK skipper MS Dhoni’s performance as Chennai Super Kings faced Delhi Capitals on Sunday, March 31, in Vizag. Despite CSK’s loss, Dhoni’s innings stood out and provided an exciting finish that delighted the spectators.

This was the first time in IPL 2024 that MS Dhoni came to bat at the crease. The legendary wicketkeeper displayed no rustiness and smashed 37 runs off just 16 deliveries. His innings included 4 boundaries and 3 huge sixes. While talking to his official YouTube channel, Srikkanth expressed his astonishment at witnessing the vintage performance from Captain Cool.

“I don’t know how to express this. On one side, as an MS Dhoni fan, I am very happy, in a sense thatâ€æ what a knock! At the age of 42, someone is hitting like this, he is hitting them without any worry. Vintage Dhoni! In 2005, he hit an aggressive century against Pakistan in Vizag, he got out for 0 in the first match of his international career. In his second match (fifth), he tore into the Pakistan attack.”

“He is hitting sixes over point, he is hitting one-handed six into the mid-wicket stands. He is hitting it everywhere. He tore into the Delhi attack. What a knock! Earlier, he used to access the point region for his big shots on the off-side, but that cover drive, that leaning six was brilliant,” said Srikkanth.

Srikkanth said that MS Dhoni is 42 but he is still the best Indian wicket-keeper at the moment both with gloves and bat. The former batter said that Dhoni can still play for another two seasons.

“In all fairness, Delhi bowled well. But, Dhoni’s batting was sensational. Yes, CSK lost. But it was a moral victory for CSK fans because everybody was waiting for an opportunity to see Dhoni bat.”

“In terms of keeping, he is still the best Indian keeper. He is still taking catches nonchalantly while standing up to spinners. He is still India’s best. No. 1 is Dhoni, No. 2 is Wriddhiman Saha, they both are still the best in the business. He made it look so easy. He is keeping well, he is batting well, he is running between the wickets well. Is he 42? I think, he will play the IPL for 2 more years, I think,” said
