Dhoni has been on a sabbatical in recent times as he last appeared for India in their World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand. He took a sabbatical after that and has not been included in any series since, sparking speculation about his future. But fans can expect to see him next when the IPL 2020 kicks off in March.
