The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 came to a proper end when Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the title for the fifth time. In the last over of the IPL 2023 final at Narendra Modi Stadium, CSK and Gujarat Titans (GT) played an exciting game that kept people on the edge of their seats. With their fifth win, the team led by MS Dhoni is tied with the Mumbai Indians as the most successful team in the game over the past 16 years.
After this win, it has been said that Dhoni will likely have a number of tests done on his knee issue. During the IPL, there were several claims that the 41-year-old was playing with a knee injury. In fact, CSK head coach Stephen Fleming said at one of his press interviews that the CSK captain was having trouble with his knee.
The former Indian wicketkeeper who also batted has been seen walking on occasion. During Chennai’s last home game in the IPL 2023, CSK did a lap of honor at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. A shot of him wearing a kneecap went viral during that time. Revsortz says that the former captain of India will be taken to the well-known Kokilaben hospital in Mumbai this week so that tests can be done to see how bad his knee injury is.
Now is the best time for me to say that I’m leaving: Dhoni MS
Dhoni’s exit was one of the biggest topics of conversation during the IPL 2023, given where he is in his cricket career. Harsha Bhogle asked Dhoni in the post-match chat after the final if the former Indian player would play in IPL 2024. Dhoni said that it would depend on his body and fitness level at that time.
“Want to know the answer? From what you can see, this is the best time for me to say that I’m leaving my job. But everywhere I’ve been this year, I’ve been shown so much love and kindness…I think it would be easy for me to say “Thank you very much,” but I think it would be hard for me to work hard for nine months and then come back and play at least one more season of IPL. “But the body matters a lot,” MS said.
