That answer from MS is very different to the one he gave last year': Watson  feels Dhoni won't return as player next IPL | Cricket - Hindustan Times

During the IPL CSK vs Punjab Kings match on Thursday in Dubai. Dhoni was asked about his future at CSK, to which he responded with the following words.

“Well, you can see me in yellow. But whether I’ll be playing for CSK. There are a lot of uncertainties around it for the simple reason that we have two new teams coming up. We don’t know the retention policy. We don’t know how many foreigners. Indian players, we can retain, the money cap that every player will be cutting from the kitty. So, there are a lot of uncertainties. Unless the rules are in place you can’t really decide that. We will wait for it to happen and hopefully, it will be good for everyone,” Dhoni

The uncertainty Dhoni pointed out could be related to the possibility. That he will do well as a player and potentially take on a new role. That thought has been shared by a former Australian.

And CSK all-rounder Shane Watson, who believes that after Dhoni has said that. There is a strong possibility that the 2021 IPL will be the last we see of Dhoni as a player.

“Hearing that answer from MS to me was very different to the answer. He gave last year where he was very confident that yes, he will definitely be back. Hearing him sort of talk about things such as let us see what happens at the auction. And all the different sorts of permutations with two new teams coming in. That for me more so suggests that he will be in yellow still but potentially not as a player and more as a mentor. Which still is a huge role in the franchise,” Watson, who played under Dhoni, said on Star Sports.
