The fans of MS Dhoni are waiting excitedly for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League to begin as it will mark the comeback of the former Indian skipper on-field after a long period. MS Dhoni, who recently announced his retirement from international cricket following a long sabbatical from the cricket world, will be seen leading his team Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
