Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg believes this is the last season for Chennai Super Kings skipper (CSK) MS Dhoni in the IPL. Incidentally, the former India cricketer had hanged his boots from international cricket last year. He was recently appointed as the mentor of Team India for the upcoming T20 World Cup, scheduled in the UAE and Oman.

With the mega auctions coming up, the Super Kings will ponder their options and will have to look beyond MS Dhoni, who is in the twilight of his career. Brad Hogg noted that Dhoni had come past his best years and a decision on retirement is on the cards. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Hogg said:

“I think he’s going to retire at the end of the year from IPL cricket. The way he got out to Chakravarthy the other day with the wrong un’, there was a huge gap between bat and pad. I think the reflexes of the 40-year-old are just starting to wane. His keeping has been sensational.

“It’s good for Indian cricket and CSK that he is still going because of his leadership out in the middle. He’s keeping things calm and helped Jadeja grow as a cricketer and developing youngsters as well. Just the way that he walked off, that body language, there was a glint in the eye that said I think I’ve just lost that sharpness,” he added.

MS Dhoni has managed to accumulate only 52 runs with the bat in IPL 2021 with the highest score of 18.

MS Dhoni can take up a management role – Brad Hogg

Brad Hogg feels the former India captain MS Dhoni might take up a role in the support staff group after accepting the role of a mentor in the Indian team for the global T20 competition.

“At the age of 40 and with the role that he’s got with the Indian Cricket Team going into that T20 World Cup, I think he’ll move into a management role or even the head coach of CSK,” Hogg said.

“Probably the management role and sit alongside Stephen Fleming and help out develop the youngsters but also create a good strategy for the new wave of CSK cricketers moving forward because you need someone of that quality around that knows Indian conditions, knows the Indian people and has a good rapport with the players,” he added.
