This is the best time for me to announce retirement: MS Dhoni

Dhoni’s retirement was a prominent topic during IPL 2023 due to his career stage. In a post-match interview, Harsha Bhogle asked about Dhoni’s potential return for IPL 2024. To which Dhoni responded that it would depend on his body and fitness at that time.

“Looking for an answer? Circumstantially if you see this is the best time for me to announce retirement. But the amount of love and affection that I have been shown, wherever I have been this year…I think the easy thing for me to say would be to say ‘Thank you very much’, but the tough thing for me would be to work hard for nine months and come back and play at least one more season of IPL. But a lot depends on the body,”
