Well, throughout the season, the former Indian skipper was seen gifting his iconic number 7 jersey to different players from the opposite sides, including the likes of — Jos Buttler, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Nitish Rana, and Kuldeep Yadav.
Well, this gesture left the fans wondering that why all of a sudden Dhoni is gifting his jerseys and the fans started 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.
However, Mahii has finally cleared the air and it was ‘definitely not’ the last season of IPL for Dhoni. On Sunday, before the match between CSK and KXIP kickstarted, Mahi was asked whether the game against KXIP could be his last game in the yellow. MSD said: “Definitely not”.
Later on, after CSK defeated KXIP, Mahi was asked about the gesture and he revealed that the cricketers asked for his jersey as they were also thinking that he might retire from IPL too. He said:
“Maybe they thought I am retiring, you know. I retired from international cricket, so they might be thinking I am retiring from IPL as well,”
“Definitely not, right?” was Harsha Bhogle’s next question referring to the earlier statement of Dhoni at the toss. “Definitely not,” the legendary cricketer said for the second time on Sunday.
