Dhoni will have to retire from IPL 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) will not be able to mentor the new franchise in the upcoming T20 league of South Africa 

According to a report in the Indian Express, a BCCI official said, “It is clear, no Indian player, including domestic players, can participate in any foreign league until he retires from all formats of the game.

If a player wants to participate in these upcoming leagues, he can do so only after he breaks all ties with BCCI. 

Former captain MS Dhoni, who has won every major ICC title for Indian cricket, has retired from international cricket. In such a situation, the fans do not understand why the board is not allowing Dhoni to participate in other leagues.

However, for this he will also have to retire from the IPL. The official further said, “Then he cannot play IPL for CSK. He will have to retire here first.” 

Significantly, when it comes to allowing Indian players in foreign leagues, the BCCI has been strict. 

In 2019, Indian star wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik had to apologize for watching a Caribbean Premier League match from the Trinbago Knight Riders dugout.

He was invited by KKR coach Brendon McCullum at that time.
