“Yes, definitely. I am very confident that Dhoni will lead CSK in 2021. He has won three titles for us in the IPL. This is the first year we have not qualified for the playoffs. No other team has done that. One bad year does not mean we will have to change everything,” Viswanathan told TOI

MS Dhoni on his conformation for IPL 2021:

During the last match of Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab, Danny Morrison asked Dhoni whether this will be his last appearance in IPL. To which Dhoni gently had a two-word answer ”Definitely Not”.

Danny Morrison: Could this be MSD your last game ever in Yellow?

MS Dhoni: “Definitely Not.”

Mahendra Singh Dhoni also confessed that they need to change the core of the team before the next edition of IPL. And want to purchase some talented and firing players for CSK.

“We need to slightly change our core group and look for the next ten years. At the start of the IPL, we made a team and it served well for us. There comes a time where you have to shift a bit, change a bit and hand it over to the next generation.” said MS Dhoni.

Gautam Gambhir on Chennai Super Kings:

Chennai needs to update its squad for the next year’s IPL. Also, they need to be active in the next season of IPL, said Gambhir.

CSK needs to revamp their entire squad. They have many talented players in the team but most of them won’t continue. They have to change them, age is not on their side. Most of the players will change. CSK is not seen very active at auctions but in 2021 IPL auctions they probably will be the most active team’, said Gambhir to ESPNCricinfo.
