Harbhajan Singh says MS Dhoni's retirement will be very different: If he leaves, he will do it very suddenlyMarch 18,2023
Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh said if Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni decides to leave, he will do it in a very sudden manner. Dhoni has captained CSK to four Indian Premier League titles and could draw the curtain on his glittering career after this season.
Speaking on the Sports Yaari YouTube channel, Harbhajan said Dhoni's retirement will be very different, adding that if he decides to leave, then he will do it suddenly.
"See, he is MS Dhoni. Whatever he does, it will be very different. If he is going to leave, he will do it very suddenly. We saw how he left India's Test captaincy in the same fashion," said Harbhajan.
The former CSK spinner said Dhoni has always wanted to finish his career in front of the 'Yellow Army', adding that the CSK fan base is very close to him.
"But he always wanted to finish his career in front of CSK fans. That's very close to him. He wanted to retire in from of them, and that's a great thing that he thinks of the fans," Harbhajan added.
He went on to say that Dhoni has been working very hard ahead of the 2023 IPL, adding that the former India skipper doesn't leave the nets until his back hurts.
"MS Dhoni has worked very hard ahead of the IPL, you can see that from the size of his biceps. It doesn't look like he is 41 years old. He reached Chennai quite early, which is a very good sign for CSK. He will bat for around two hours in the nets. He doesn't leave the nets until his back starts to hurt," said Harbhajan.
CSK is all set to face defending champions Gujarat Titans in the opening match of the 2023 IPL on March 31.
