This cricketing season of IPL is considered to be one special outburst as it was expected that MS Dhoni will take retirement from cricket after this tournament, and especially after having a fairytale ending like this where the team wins the cup on last ball seemed like it. But Dhoni has hinted on playing another season as a return gift to his loyal fans, if he stays fit for which he has 6-7 months to think.
