Do you think MS Dhoni has played his last IPL match for CSK? Here’s how IPL fans reacted after CSK’s exit from the IPL 2024 playoff race.

Will MS Dhoni come back roaring next season? The former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper has returned home after the defending champions were dumped out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 2024 by Virat Kohli-starrer Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on Saturday. Faf du Plessis' RCB outclassed CSK in the final-over thriller to punch their IPL 2024 playoff tickets. RCB sparked a stunning turnaround by registering six consecutive wins to enter the last four of the IPL 2024 with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).
