CEO of CSK Kasi Viswanathan says, "We don't worry about him at all," with his tone brimming with confidence when asked about MS Dhoni's preparations for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The chief executive officer of Chennai Super Kings is as confident as ever that Dhoni 'will take care of himself' and the 3-time champions well in the UAE. All eyes are on MS Dhoni, 39, as he is all set to make a much-awaited return to competitive cricket when IPL 2020 kickstarts in the UAE from September 19 and runs until November 10. Dhoni has not been in competitive action since India's exit in the 2019 World Cup semi-final.
Dhoni's return was delayed when the IPL was postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Dhoni had led a training camp in Chennai in March but the camp was suspended as well due to the pandemic. "Yes. We can expect MS Dhoni to be part of both (IPL 2020 and 2021) and probably for even the next year. 2022," Viswanathan told a leading daily on Tuesday.
"I am getting updates through the media only, saying he has been training in Jharkhand in indoor nets. But we don't have to worry about the skipper, boss. We don't worry about him at all. "He knows his responsibilities and he will take care of himself and the team." Speculation is rife about MS Dhoni's future in international cricket as he has not played competitive cricket for more than a year. While some, including a few teammates, are hinting that Dhoni has already played his last match for India, the CSK skipper has kept mum about his plans.
