The year 2020 turned out to be a tough one for MS Dhoni and his team Chennai Super Kings. The team which has won the title of this cash-rich league three times failed to live up to the expectations of the fans this time and is currently sitting at the bottom of the points table. CSK also became the first team to get disqualified from the league.
Legend for a reason ❤️. The mutual respect every individual cricketer has for him is so so great to watch.

However, this doesn’t mean that this is the end. Even after ending up on the losing side, the young talents in the opposition are always in awe of the legend Dhoni is. After every match, MS is seen giving some important tips to the young cricketers of the opposite teams. Not just this, he has been winning millions of hearts with his gestures.

Well, throughout the season, the former Indian skipper was seen gifting his iconic number 7 jersey to different players. After gifting his jersey to Jos Buttler, Hardik Pandya, MSD has now gifted his signed jersey to Nitish Rana and Kuldeep Yadav.
While it’s hard to understand why all of a sudden he is gifting his jerseys, but the fans are speculating that the legendary cricketer will drop the retirement bomb when you least expect, just like how he left everyone stunned by announcing his retirement from international cricket.
The rumors and debates on Dhoni’s retirement were going around ever since he took a sabbatical from cricket after the World Cup semi-final. It was on August 15th, on the occasion of Independence Day, former Indian captain took to his Twitter and announced his retirement out of nowhere. Fans are wondering whether he is going to announce retirement from IPL as well.
Here, check out some of the reactions of Twitterati on this:
