Now, initially it seemed like a sabbatical from the field, however, concerns were raised when his name wasn’t in the contracts released by BCCI.

Not only will his performance be beneficial for Chennai Super Kings, but also for his selection in the upcoming T20 World Cup. The selection committee of the T20 World Cup will be present at the IPL 2020 to pick the squad. Therefore, if Dhoni performs well, then there is a huge possibility of him being selected in the squad. While this is a news that makes his fans jump-with-joy, former Indian skipper, Kapil Dev, did not seem ecstatic about this. His concern is that if the selection committee fixates only on Dhoni, then the fresh talent available on-field will not be taken into consideration.
