brad hogg on dhoni: i think he’s going to retire at the end of the year from ipl cricket; MS Dhoni will say goodbye to IPL cricket by the end of the year, says Brad Hogg
- CSK have won the IPL title 3 times under Dhoni’s captaincy
- Chennai team is on top in the current IPL with 16 points
- Dhoni’s bat has remained silent so far in the current IPL
Former Australia chinaman bowler Brad Hogg believes that Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh (MS Dhoni) will also say goodbye to this T20 league after IPL 2021. Dhoni had retired from international cricket last year (2020).
However, a few days back, the CSK CEO had rubbished the news that Dhoni is about to retire from the IPL. The 40-year-old Dhoni is not able to show anything special with the bat in the current season of IPL. The way Dhoni used to play earlier is now missing. However, he has no match in terms of leadership on the ground.
In the current season of IPL 2021, under the captaincy of Dhoni, his bowlers and batsmen are performing brilliantly. CSK’s team has currently qualified in the playoffs with 16 points.
Hogg said on his YouTube channel, ‘I think Dhoni will say goodbye to IPL cricket by the end of this year. The way he got out to Varun Chakraborty, it is clearly visible that his edge is now blunt. The effect of his 40s was visible on the way he got out. There was a huge gap between his bat and pad. Although his keeping is still amazing.
In IPL 2021, Dhoni has scored 52 runs in 10 matches played so far in which his best score is 18 runs. “It is good for Indian cricket and CSK that his ability to lead is still visible,” said Hogg. He is still keeping things calm and helping Jadeja and the youngsters grow as cricketers. The way his batting is going and the way he got out, it seems that now his edge is getting blunt.
Dhoni will be the mentor of the Indian team in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Hogg said about Dhoni’s mentorship that he may soon be seen in a management role.
