Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni hasn’t been seen on the field ever since India lost the ICC world cup final against New Zealand in July 2019. It has been over six months that the player has played a single match. Speculations regarding his retirement have been made but there hasn’t been any direct statement from Dhoni himself.
With the next season of Indian Premier League starting in March 2020, people are excited about Dhoni’s comeback. The first match of the season will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Mumbai will be the defending champions from last year when Chennai lost against them in the finals.
Mumbai Indians lead by Rohit Sharma have won the maximum number of titles while Chennai Super Kings have always been fan favourites. With Dhoni making a come back after more than six months, his performance in IPL 2020 might be his key to the squad for ICC T20 world cup which will be coming up this year.
The first match will take place on the 29th of March 2020 at Wankhede, Mumbai, 8 PM IST.
