Former India skipper MS Dhoni has not been seen in action after the team’s World Cup exit in July last year. His fans expected to see him in the Indian Premier League — initially scheduled for March — but that too had to be postponed in light of the coronavirus outbreak.
However, Dhoni’s followers on Twitter have now gone berserk after IPL chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed that the tournament will be held in the UAE from September 19 to November 8. However, the organisers are still awaiting the approval from the Union government for taking IPL out of India.
With the announcement of the schedule, Dhoni’s fans expect that he will again don the yellow jersey of Chennai Super Kings and lead the franchise in the tournament. Former India cricketer Kidambi Srikanth, expressing his excitement, said that he is looking forward to seeing Dhoni play again.
Great to know #IPL2020 is happening. I’m excited and looking forward to see @msdhoni play again! — Kidambi Srikanth (@srikidambi) July 24, 2020
One user wrote that he was waiting for “Thala Entry,” while the other said that he was dying to see him
in action again.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has prepared a 51-day plan for the IPL like last year. However, there are various issues which will be discussed in the governing council meeting next week.
