According to Brad Hogg, who is a former Australia spinner, the season of IPL 2021 could be the last for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. According to Brad Hogg, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is now 41 years old. He is getting a little weak. Due to which he will now have to retire from IPL as well.
Brad Hogg, after Varun Chakraborty dismissed Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for 1 run, made this statement which may well be a valid statement.
If we look at the performance of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in IPL matches, then Mahendra Singh Dhoni has worked very hard in the last 2 years or in the last two editions of IPL and struggled a lot during his batting.
He has scored only 2 runs in his 14 matches and this year he has been able to score only 52 runs in 10 matches, which is very less. The IPL season that is going on can be very bad for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, because Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not able to score runs.
And according to Brad Hogg, now the effect of the age of 40 is visible on the captain of Chennai Super Kings.
Brad Hogg said that, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni may also retire from IPL later this year, because the way he got out on the wrong ball of Varun Chakravarthy the second day, Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a player.
For a player? That was not a small mistake. And this mistake is probably happening to them because of their age. There was a huge gap between his bat and pad. The weight of Dhoni’s 40 years old is now visible on his face.
Brad Hogg told his YouTube channel that Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s wicketkeeping has been very sensational and now that type of keeping is also less visible.
Brad Hogg said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very good for Indian cricket and Chennai Super Kings, under his leadership; Chennai Super Kings have won a lot of matches and will probably win this match too.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni helps a lot in keeping things calm. Ravindra has been making Jadeja into a good player, but the way he got out today, his body language felt that the brightness of his eyes and the brightness of his face were ending.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni had distanced himself from international cricket last year, and took retirement. But Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been appointed as a mentor to an Indian cricket team for the T20 World Cup starting from October 17.
Brad Hogg believes that even for Chennai Super Kings, the former Indian captain cannot remain in the screen and he may retire.
According to Brad Hogg, the former Australia spinner has full hopes that he is a 3-time IPL winner and will also become the winner of the IPL for the fourth time.
He holds the record for winning major trophies in all three formats of the match. He holds the record for being the only captain to win an ICC trophy.
And he may play the role of managing the IPL franchise as well, and may even oversee the proceedings along with Stephen Fleming, Chennai Super Kings player Mahendra Singh Dhoni announces his retirement with the IPL season And it will change the team of Chennai Super Kings. Without Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings team may have to start afresh.
Brad Hogg said that the role that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is being given to play in the T20 World Cup at the age of 40 can also be given to him as the head coach of CSK.
Brad Hogg said that perhaps the role of management will be very good for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he will sit with Stephen Fleming to help develop the youth and Chennai Super Kings will fight with a new wave by making good strategy.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni can also strategize for his team as a coach and everyone will listen to Mahendra Singh Dhoni like Mahendra Singh Dhoni is, because he has good relations with all the players.
