CSK finished the tournament with six wins from fourteen matches. Before the game could begin, words like ‘Definitely’ and ‘not’ were trending on WhatsApp statuses, Twitter feeds, Facebook timelines, Instagram stories and others.

Those two words hit headlines after MS Dhoni made the world know that IPL 2020 won’t be his last.

He would return in the next season again. But the big question after this was, why are players from different teams collecting a signed MS Dhoni jersey after every game.

When Dhoni was asked this question, he said; “Perhaps they thought I’m retiring,” But he was ‘definitely not’.

“Good to see you’ve got some jerseys left, everyone has been sneaking some jerseys from you,” said presenter Harsha Bhogle when Dhoni walked up to have a chat with the official broadcasters post CSK’s win.

“Maybe they thought I am retiring, you know. I retired from international cricket, so they might be thinking I am retiring from IPL as well,” Dhoni replied. Meanwhile, the post-match conference was all about Dhoni explaining how IPL 2020 became CSK’s worst season in the history of the tournament. 

"Definitely not, right?” was Bhogle’s next question referring to the earlier statement of Dhoni at the toss with Danny Morrison. “Definitely not,” Dhoni said for the second time over his retirement. “We need to slightly change our core group and look for the next 10 years,” Dhoni said after the team’s final league game.

Dhoni, further vowed that his team will come back strongly in the next season. "At the start of the IPL, we made a team and it served well. There comes a time where you have to shift a bit, hand it over to the next generation. We’ll come back stronger, that’s what we are known for. It was a difficult campaign. We committed a lot of errors. The last four games were a template of where we would like to be," Dhoni said. 

Dhoni also accepted that the team didn’t play to its full potential. "I don’t think we played to the full potential. If you are lagging too much, it becomes very difficult to push yourself and come up with performances. Very proud the way they played their cricket. It would have been very tough 6-7 games. You won’t want to be in a dressing room that is not really enjoying cricket. You want to keep coming up with different ideas but if the dressing room atmosphere is not happy, it becomes very tough," he further added.

“A lot depends on what the BCCI decides upon the auction. This has been a tough year. This is one of the seasons where most of the teams played well," he also stated.
