M.S. Dhoni’s fans were desperately waiting for IPL 2020. It would have seen the return of MS Dhoni on the cricket field and there was huge excitement among the fans for his return as he hasn’t played competitive cricket since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final match against New Zealand. IPL 2020 was scheduled to begin from March 29 with Chennai Super Kings taking on Mumbai Indians in the season-opener, and there was a lot frenzy among Dhoni fans for this game.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, in all likelihood, IPL 2020 will be cancelled and the wait is only going to get longer for Dhoni fans as India is under complete lockdown for 21 days and all the efforts are being to save Indian from the corona pandemic. Presently, it would be utterly foolish to even think about IPL 2020 because the only battle we need to fight right now is–the fight against coronavirus.
In virtue of such a global event, the former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg reckons that the veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni might have one more burst for India amid the still-ongoing speculation surrounding his retirement. Hogg said this in response to a fan on Twitter.
Brad Hogg, considered to be one of the best chinaman spinners in the history of cricket, has recently been more active on his social-media page amid the coronavirus lockdown across the world. “What u think, If IPL 2020 cancelled, Dhoni should retire from international cricket,” a user asked the 49-year-old.
“Speculation, I don’t think he will announce it, he seems pretty calm about things and moves onto the next thing he needs to accomplish,” Hogg tweeted in response to the query.
“It’s been an entertaining career, let’s enjoy what he has done!” he added.
“I feel he may have one more burst in the next 2 years for India,” Hogg signed off.
MS Dhoni, 38, made his previous knock in the 2019 World Cup semi-final, the place where India misplaced to New Zealand.
