Despite announcing his retirement from international cricket in August 2020, former India captain MS Dhoni is still one of the most talked about cricketers in the world. Dhoni last played in the India Premier League earlier this year, and will lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the next edition of the tournament in 2023. With less than six months left for the start of IPL 2023, Dhoni was seen batting in the nets at the Jharkhand Cricket Associations Stadium, in order to get up to speed.

The BCCI recently that the IPL 2023 will go back to the home-and-away format.
“The next season of men’s IPL will also go back to the home and away format with all ten teams playing their home matches at their designated venues,” read BCCI President Sourav Ganguly‘s letter, a copy of which is in possession of NDTV.
Last year, the IPL league matches were played across four venues in Mumbai and Pune, while the knockout matches were played in Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
