“I don’t know. I have 8-9 months to decide. The small auction will be around December. So why to take that headache right now? I have ample time to decide. But, I will always be there for CSK whether it’s in the playing form or sitting somewhere outside,” MS Dhoni told Harsha Bhogle for the official broadcasters.
This will be the 10th time that CSK will feature in the final of the IPL, having won the prestigious tournament on four occasions. As for GT, they will now face the winner of the Eliminator between Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Friday.
