Dhoni’s last appearance on the cricketing scene was during the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) season, where his team, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), clinched their record-tying fifth championship title in a thrilling final against the Gujarat Titans (GT). Following the culmination of this lucrative T20 tournament, Dhoni has been dedicating valuable time to his family. Notably, he was recently spotted in the United States, engaging in a friendly game of golf with former US President Donald Trump.
Furthermore, cricket enthusiasts were pleasantly surprised to find Dhoni gracing the stands during the 2023 US Open quarter-final match between Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev. The ex-India captain has said that he will return for at least one for season in the IPL.
