'By the time the next IPL starts...': CSK CEO says MS Dhoni has 'recovered well' after knee surgery | Cricket News - Times of India

New Delhi: Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan MS Dhoni is expected to be fully fit before the 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League, saying his captain has recovered from knee surgery.
The former India captain underwent an operation on his left knee after leading CSK to a record fifth IPL title earlier this year.
Viswanathan said that Dhoni is undergoing rehabilitation and will hit the nets soon.
“He has recovered (from the knee injury). He is going through his rehabilitation programmes, has started training. By the time the next IPL starts, I am sure he will be fit to play, Viswanathan told ANI.
Earlier, in the IPL this year, Dhoni, in some matches, was seen sporting a knee brace and was also seen struggling to run between the wickets.
After the season ended, the 42-year-old underwent an operation in Mumbai in June.
After CSK’s record-equalling fifth title, Dhoni said in his post-match presentation, “If you look at the circumstances, this is the perfect time to announce retirement. It’s easy for me to say thank you and retirement. But difficult.” It’s about nine months of hard work for him and trying to play another season of IPL, the body has to be maintained, but the love I’ve got from CSK fans, it’s about playing another season for them. It will be a gift. The way they have expressed their love and passion, I need to do something for them.”

At the recently held mini-auction in Dubai, Viswanathan said the team was lucky to have covered all the bases as per the plan.
“Now it is up to the boys to perform well on the field,” Viswanathan said.
The CSK CEO also said that the IPL camp for the next season will start from the first week of March next year.
