Raina Suggests Dhoni Could Play IPL 2025: Speculations Rise as Dhoni’s Last Over Heroics Stun Mumbai

Former captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, may also participate in the upcoming season of the IPL. Former cricketer Suresh Raina made this claim during an event hosted by Jio Cinema. On April 14th, Dhoni led the CSK team against the Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium, where they suffered three consecutive defeats. Following this match, discussions arose during a talk show about Dhoni’s future involvement in cricket.

The anchor had posed this question to former fast bowler RP Singh during the previous program. In response, Singh stated that Raina would be better equipped to provide a more insightful answer to this.

Dhoni retired from international cricket on August 15, 2020, and since then, there have been speculations about his retirement from IPL starting from 2023. In 2023, during a match at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium, commentator Danny Morrison asked Dhoni if he was enjoying his last season. Dhoni responded with a smile, “You’ve confirmed it’s my last IPL, haven’t you?” This prompted laughter from Dhoni and the audience. Morrison remarked that Dhoni would still be seen playing in the coming years.

Before the start of this IPL season, Ruturaj Gaikwad was entrusted with the captaincy of Chennai. In this situation, it is speculated that this will be Dhoni’s last year in the IPL.

In the match against Mumbai Indians in Mumbai, Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored 20 runs in the last four balls he faced. He hit sixes in three consecutive balls and took two runs in one ball. In the match against Delhi Capitals, he scored 37 runs off 16 balls, including four fours and three sixes. Throughout this season, he found himself batting lower down the order in all four matches and scored a total of 59 runs.
