IPL 2022: MS Dhoni arrives in Chennai ahead of mega auction;
IPL 2022: MS Dhoni was spotted in Chennai, a few weeks before the Indian Premier League’s mega auction. The Chennai Super Kings captain checked into a hotel in the South Indian city on Thursday, January 27.
Dhoni is set to join the Chennai Super Kings as they prepare for the major auction on February 12 and 13. Despite some odd decisions in the past. Dhoni has always played a key role in the team’s auction operations. And CSK are recognised for doing well at the auction table.
Captain MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Moeen Ali have all been retained by CSK.
MS Dhoni put an end to speculation over his IPL future when he stated at an event in Chennai that he would like to continue playing for Chennai Super Kings and that his farewell match would be held in Chennai. It’s unclear whether the illustrious captain will stay with the organisation following IPL2022.
In the previous season, Dhoni spoke extensively about IPL auction dynamics. And how CSK would like to develop a core that would serve them well for at least the next 5-10 years.
“Well it’s not about me playing for CSK, it’s about what is best for CSK. The core group, we have to have a hard look to see who can contribute for the next 10 years,” he had said.
CSK will enter the mega auction with a budget of Rs 58 crore. Hoping to assemble a well-balanced squad ahead of their IPL title defence.
