Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh shared his views on the reports that MS Dhoni will draw curtains on his glittering career after the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2023.
Dhoni has led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to four IPL titles and is likely to give his best shot to bid adieu to his career in grand fashion by winning the IPL in 2023.
Reacting to the same, Harbhajan said if Dhoni decides to quit, he will do it in a very sudden manner, just like he did with India’s Test captaincy and international cricket.
Speaking on the Sports Yaari YouTube channel, Harbhajan Singh said: “See, he is MS Dhoni. Whatever he does, it will be very different. If he is going to leave, he will do it very suddenly. We saw how he left India's Test captaincy in the same fashion.”
He added, “But he always wanted to finish his career in front of CSK fans. That's very close to him. He wanted to retire in from of them, and that's a great thing that he thinks of the fans.”
The former CSK spinner said that Dhoni has been working very hard for the IPL 2023. He said, “MS Dhoni has worked very hard ahead of the IPL, you can see that from the size of his biceps. It doesn't look like he is 41 years old. He reached Chennai quite early, which is a very good sign for CSK.”
Harbhajan signed off by saying, “He will bat for around two hours in the nets. He doesn't leave the nets until his back starts to hurt.”
Notably, CSK is all set to face defending champions Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023 opener on March 31.
