Yusuf Pathan discussed the match between Delhi and Chennai with ESPNCricinfo Hindi. During this discussion, this former Indian cricketer said that, about which hardly anyone is thinking. Yusuf Pathan said that MS Dhoni can still play IPL for 5 more years.
There is a rule about being an impact player, isn’t it?
Now if you are thinking that how is this possible, then Yusuf Pathan also gave the logic behind it. He has linked Dhoni’s connection of 5 years and playing with the latest rule of IPL. Actually, he cited the Impact Player Rule and said that when this is the rule then what is the problem for Dhoni to play for 5 more years.
‘Still hitting sixes, don’t think of retiring’
Yusuf further said that Dhoni may not be the captain of IPL but as an impact player I think he can play. In this way, he can also play the role of mentor in CSK. So don’t think that Dhoni is retiring now. There is still a lot of cricket in them. Had this not happened, he would not have been hitting long sixes despite the pain in his knee.
The former India all-rounder said that Dhoni is still showing full commitment. He is thoroughly entertaining his fans. So I think that this impact player has come, because of this he can play cricket for 5 more years. We can get to see more of his sixes and fours now.
