In light of this, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has stated that he will be very shocked. If Dhoni does not participate in the forthcoming editions of the Indian Premier League. He also stated that the impact player rule will assist Dhoni in extending his IPL career.
Also, during CSK’s penultimate home game, the entire team, including Dhoni, was spotted taking a lap of honor, fueling speculation about the famous batter’s retirement. The former English cricketer also believes that the former Indian player’s captaincy and wicket-keeping have made the team even more fearsome. The CSK captain might simply take on the job of facing few deliveries and wrecking havoc.
“I was there on Sunday for Dhoni’s lap of honor. It was incredible to see how the stadium remained completely full. ” I’d be surprise if this is his final season. “I think the impact player rule, where he can keep for 20 overs and bat wherever he wants to bat, actually helps him tremendously,” Pietersen said in his Betway column.
