“He can continue for another one or two years with the CSK. He is in great shape, trains a lot. I see no reason why it should stop, ”Kasi Viswanathan, CEO of CSK, told the IANS news agency.
The 40-year-old cricketer is certainly not having a perfect time with the bat as he has only managed to accumulate 37 points in seven games which surely does not match his caliber. Additionally, his reputation as a finisher is shaken by the fact that he can only hit a single six in these games.
CSK management still believe in Dhoni and his service and believe that besides their own hitters there are many other factors involved in cricket.

“As far as we’re concerned, we’re happy with what he’s doing for CSK. It’s not just about his captain position or being a guide or a leader as the most experienced player. We think he’s still good and that he brings value as a side player. He’s been a finisher and is doing it for us, ”added Viswanathan.
