The Indian batting stalwart was expected to make his on-field comeback during this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL), where he was supposed to lead Chennai Super Kings. But the cash-rich league was suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. This competition was considered by many to be the launching pad for the 38-year-old’s international comeback.
Currently, MS Dhoni has been spending time with his wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva at their farmhouse in Ranchi as lockdown has been imposed throughout the country until May 31, 2020. Speaking of IPL 2020, it is reported that a window of ‘October-November’ is being discussed for the tournament to take place.
