IPL 2023: Will MS Dhoni play in SA20 after retirement from IPL? This is the intention of the Commissioner of the South African League
Former South African captain Graeme Smith has praised MS Dhoni and said that if he comes and plays in our T20 league, it will be very beneficial for the popularity of the league.
Amid speculations of Dhoni’s retirement after IPL 2023, former South African captain Graeme Smith has opened the doors for Mahi in the South African T20 league. Yes, Graeme Smith has praised Dhoni and said that we would be very happy if Dhoni plays in the SA20 league. Graeme Smith has said in a conversation with Hindustan Times that if a player like Dhoni joins our league, it will definitely be very beneficial for the popularity of our league. Graeme Smith said that if ever there is a chance, I will go to Mahi and ask him to play in our league.
Smith became a fan of Mahi’s fan following
Graeme Smith also praised Dhoni’s fan following, saying that I am quite surprised to see the level of Dhoni’s fan following everywhere, his fan following is huge and people love him even in South Africa. This statement of Graeme Smith also increases the chances of Dhoni playing in the SA20 league because Smith is the commissioner of this league. Due to his efforts, the first edition of the SA20 League started last year itself. Although Dhoni was speculated to play in this league last year as well, but due to being associated with IPL, Dhoni is unable to play in that league even if he wants to, but if Dhoni retires from IPL then he is likely to play in SA20 league. .
Dhoni not going to retire from IPL now
The biggest question that has arisen so far in the 16th season of IPL is the retirement of MS Dhoni. Before the start of the 16th season, there was speculation that this would be Dhoni’s last season, but the 41-year-old Mahi has dismissed the news of retirement for the time being. Dhoni, who has said goodbye to international cricket in 2020, will play this season and may be seen in the next season as well. Dhoni’s close friends have claimed that Dhoni will win a trophy and play for one more year. On the speculation of Dhoni playing in SAT20 league, Smith said – We would love if he joins the league, MS is really fantastic. Dhoni obviously has a lot of fans in India, but he is also liked in South Africa. Dhoni will be a huge asset for us in the SA20 league as a mentor.
