Mahendra Singh Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the finest cricketers of all time. Recently, he participated in the IPL 2024 with CSK, raising speculations that it might be his final competitive appearance. CSK's journey ended prematurely after being knocked out by RCB, failing to make it to the play-offs. Dhoni's legacy and contributions to cricket remain unparalleled, marking an end to an era if this indeed proves to be his last hurrah.

Last Thursday, MS Dhoni appeared in his last IPL 2024 match in Bengaluru. The Chennai Super Kings' failure to retain their championship was unsuccessful on May 18, as they fell to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in a pivotal game played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. CSK was only 10 runs shy of missing the playoffs after finishing at 191/7 in 20 overs while pursuing a target of 219, the minimum number of runs needed to qualify for the postseason.

Dhoni put up a strong display, hitting 25 runs off just 13 balls, in an attempt to give his team the win. He hit an incredible 110-meter six during his bat, but not long after, Swapnil Singh caught him off Yash Dayal's bowling.



Since then, Dhoni has left Bengaluru and gone back to his birthplace of Ranchi. Supporters and authorities of CSK are enthusiastic about his possible IPL comeback in 2025. The cricket community will be closely observing to see if the renowned batsman-wicketkeeper chooses to retire or to carry on with his remarkable career.
