CSK CEO hints at MS Dhoni’s return for IPL 2025

The CEO of Chennai Super Kings, Kasi Viswanathan, said he is ' very, very hopeful' of former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni participating in IPL 2025 as a player. Dhoni, who led CSK to a record five Indian Premier League titles, stepped down from his role before the start of the ongoing season as he gave the responsibilities to Ruturaj Gaikwad, who led the team to a fifth-place finish. 
Rumours are going around that this could be Dhoni's final season in the tournament, but Viswanathan asserted that it was completely up to the former India captain to take a final call on his future.
He said to a question on CSK’s YouTube channel, “I do not know. It is a question that only MS can answer. The question for us is that we have always respected the decisions taken by MS. We have left it to him.”
“As all of you know, he has always taken his decisions and announced them at the appropriate time. We do expect that we will get a decision as and when he decides.
“But we are very, very hopeful that he will be available for CSK next year. That is the view and expectation of the fans and mine.”
