Many have been saying that this could be the final season for the CSK skipper in the IPL, but he himself has kept fans and pundits guessing about his future in the tournament. When he was asked about his retirement during the toss against LSG, Dhoni told commentator Danny Morrison that he never commented on whether or not IPL 2023 would be his last season.

“You’ve decided it is my last,” Dhoni replied with a smile to Morrison’s question at the Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium on May 3.
