MS Dhoni has been in outstanding form in the current edition of the IPL and has played a crucial role in completing CSK's innings in numerous matches. Nevertheless, there has been extensive discussion about the seasoned cricketer retiring from the sport permanently after this IPL season commenced. Thala, a popular nickname among his fans, has retired from international cricket and now only participates in IPL matches annually.

Speculation about MS Dhoni's retirement grew stronger when he transferred the captaincy of CSK to Ruturaj Gaikwad at the beginning of the season. Later on, Gaikwad disclosed in a conversation that MS Dhoni had indicated transferring the CSK captaincy to him a few years ago.

In 2022, I recall Dhoni saying to me, "You probably won't lead next year, but be prepared for the opportunity after that." It was clear that I was prepared for it (captaincy) from that moment on. Earlier this year, Gaikwad had stated that he was not surprised or shocked by the news because it was not unfamiliar to him.

Following the game against RR on Sunday, CSK requested their supporters to remain at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. CSK supporters were then given a celebratory lap and signed balls by their beloved cricketers, causing speculation among commentators on whether this could be MS Dhoni's final match at Chepauk.

Suresh Raina's epic reply on MS Dhoni's retirement:

During the CSK vs RR match, Suresh Raina, who was commentating, was questioned about whether MS Dhoni was playing his final game in Chepauk. Raina's reply sparked optimism among numerous CSK supporters that Thala might return for one more season.

Commentator Abhinav Mukund questioned Raina on Sunday, stating, "I obviously have to inquire about this." Could this be MS Dhoni's final match at Chepauk?

"Absolutely not," Raina firmly declared before bursting into laughter.
