The former India captain, Dhoni will be seen donning the yellow jersey in the upcoming IPL. He is an inspiration for an era, is the only captain to have won three ICC trophies, and to have 10,000 plus runs in the 50-overs format.
Earlier, he stated,” Definitely. It’s a simple reason: it will be unfair to not play in Chennai and say thank you [to the fans]. Mumbai is one place where, as a team and as an individual, I have got a lot of love and affection. But it wouldn’t be nice to the CSK fans”.
