Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is 39 years old, but Shane Watson, a teammate of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), says age is not an issue for the experienced wicketkeeper-batsman. Before the start of CSK camp in IPL 2020, Shane Watson said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni can be expected to play at the age of 40.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni played his last match against New Zealand in the ICC ODI World Cup 2019. This was the semi-final match of the World Cup where India had to face defeat. Dhoni has been away from cricket and the Indian team since this match. Ever since the World Cup, there has been speculation about Dhoni’s future and his retirement. However, neither Dhoni nor the team management has made any statement regarding his retirement.
Before the 2011 World Cup, Mahendra Singh Dhoni prevented Ashish Nehra from retiring.
Shane Watson recently told the Times of India in an interview, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni still loves to play. He is an evergreen cricketer. Age does not matter to him. You see his ability. I think he can play comfortably till the age of 40. In his body. He has good control. “
“The way Dhoni has been scoring and performing incredibly behind the wicket is astonishing to anyone. I am a huge fan of him. I want to see him play incessantly in CSK or international cricket,” he added.
The Australian all-rounder also commented on the 1913 edition of the IPL. The IPL 2020 will be played in the United Arab Emirates from September 19 to November 10 due to the corona virus epidemic. The tournament will be played in three stadiums in the UAE. “The audience will encourage us to sit away,” Watson said. The pitches will be slow. We have some good spinners that we can use.
