Chennai Super Kings skipper, MS Dhoni has undergone a key-hole knee surgery successfully after the IPL.
Moreover, Dhoni played the IPL in its entirety and was facing severe left knee issues.
This is also the reason why he was coming in late to bat as well mostly on No.8.
Therefore, after the completion of the tournament on the 30th of May, Dhoni got himself admitted to Kokilaben Hospital to get treatment.
Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala has treated Dhoni for his problem and has performed similar surgery on Rishabh Pant as well.
Meanwhile, Dhoni will remain in the hospital for a few more days before returning to Ranchi.
Today, CSK CEO, Kasi Viswanathan spoke to MSD and stated that the skipper sounded fine on the telephone and that it was a successful surgery.
I spoke to him after the operation. I cannot explain what the surgery is about but we have been told it is a key-hole surgery. He sounded fine in our conversation.
Dhoni confirms playing the next season of the IPL for CSK
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni in the post-match presentation clearly stated that he will be playing in the next season of the IPL as well.
Additionally, he also stated that the harder path would be to train for 9 months and come back and play the IPL.
Dhoni also said that he was quite teary-eyed after Chennai Super Kings’ win in the final against Gujarat Titans.
Looking for an answer? This is the best time to announce my retirement. But the amount of love I have received all over. The easy thing would be to walk away from here, but the harder thing would be working hard for 9 months and try to play another IPL.
Adding further, he said,
It would be a gift from me, won’t be easy on the body. You do get emotional, the first game at CSK everyone was chanting my name. My eyes were full of water, I needed to take some time off in the dugout. I realised I needed to enjoy this. I think they love me for what I am, they love that I am so grounded, I don’t try to portray something I’m not. Just keep it simple.
