Former India captain MS Dhoni’s return to top-flight cricket is all set to be delayed due to the postponement of the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) season. The seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman last represented India during the 2019 World Cup semi-final and has been on a sabbatical from international cricket since then. The IPL 2020 was recently postponed to a launch date of April 15 by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in wake of the ongoing worldwide crisis caused by the coronavirus.
