The season saw Dhoni being afforded quite a reception at each venue he played. It was in part due to speculations that the CSK captain could be turning out as a player for the final time.

The 41-year-old played with an injured knee throughout the season and was often seen limping, raising further concerns about if he will be able to extend his playing career. After winning the IPL final, Dhoni confirmed that while he’s not done retiring right away, a decision will be made in the coming few months depending on his fitness.

“…if you see, this is the best time to announce my retirement,” MS Dhoni had said after the final. “But the amount of love and affection I have been shown wherever I have been this year, the easy thing would be for me to say ‘Thank you very much’ but the tough thing for me is to work hard for another nine months and come back and play at least one more season of IPL.”

However, CSK have shared a video of Dhoni climbing up the never-ending stairs of Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad that lead up to the dressing room with inspirational music playing in the background. “Oh Captain, My Captain!” the post accompanied by the video reads and it has left users wondering the purpose behind the tweet.

Few are speculating that this is a hint Dhoni is expected to announce his retirement soon while others feel he might be stepping down as the captain. Dhoni underwent surgery immediately after the end of IPL before leaving for Jharkhand to start his recovery.

“A lot depends on the body, I have 6-7 months to decide. It will be more like a gift from my side, it’s not easy for me but that’s a gift. The way they’ve shown their love and affection, I think that’s something I need to do for them,” MS Dhoni had said.

Amidst all this also took place a controversial incident, where veteran India spinner and Dhoni’s former teammate Harbhajan Singh blasted out on a fan over giving all the credit for India’s ICC trophy victories to the Jharkhand cricketer.

The past few days were a roller coaster ride of emotions for the MS Dhoni supporters. While the Tweet from Harbhajan left many fans fuming in anger, what now has evoked agony in them is the video posted by CSK that seems a possible goodbye tribute to Dhoni.
