I have 8-9 months to decide, why take the headache now: Dhoni on his retirement

Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Tuesday said he will take a call on his retirement in another 8 to 9 months as there is no rush to decide on the future.

There have been speculations that 2023 could be a swansong season for Dhoni.

"I don't know, I have 8-9 months to decide. Why take that headache now. I have ample time to decide. The auction is in December," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation after guiding CSK to their 10th IPL final.

"I will always come to CSK. I have been out of home from January, been practicing since March, so we will see."

The four-time champions, who had finished at the ninth spot in 2022, dished out a commanding performance to outclass Gujarat Titans by 15 runs in Qualifier 1 to make it to the summit clash yet again.

"I think IPL is too big to say it is another final. It is 10 teams it is even tougher, it is hard work of more than 2 months, lots of characters, everybody has contributed, middle order didn't get ample opportunity but very happy to be where we are.

"GT are a fantastic team and they've chased very well, so the thought was to get them in. But it was a good toss to lose. If Jaddu gets conditions that help him. He's very difficult to hit. His bowling changed the game. Not to forget his partnership with Moeen."
