While fans may not see Dhoni play again in the Indian blue jersey, he will still don his yellow Chennai Super Kings jersey when the 13th edition of Indian Premier League season kicks off from September 19th. Dhoni has led CSK to three titles in the past, and even though the IPL will take place in UAE this year, Dhoni’s team will still enter as one of the favourites.
