Many of our IPL heroes have already taken retirement from IPL but some are still playing. Fitness played a very important role in their career and also their fans motivated them a lot to still continue in the world’s most difficult league but this IPL could stop them to continue. Today we will see 5 IPL legend who might pay their last season of IPL this year.
1. Harbhajan Singh
Indian legendary spinner Harbhajan Singh will most probably play his play IPL this year. He is playing for Kolkata Knight Riders this year but next year’s mega auction will not put him in KKRs future plans. Although he will have a good opportunity to be a mentor for any franchise.
2. Chris Gayle
We might see Chris Gayle for the last time in IPL this year. As next year’s mega auction will be a difficult one for him for sure as his age will play a major role. The 42-year-old will continue playing for many other different franchises in world but in IPL it seems to be like his last year. We should not forget that in 2018 too it was only Punjab who made a bid for him when his name came for the third time in auction.
3. Amit Mishra
Amit Mishra is second highest wicket taker in IPL but it seems like he will not continue from next year. As 38-year-old Amit Mishra suffered from various injuries in past few years. He delivers every time. He is currently playing for Delhi Capitals. Also, next year’s mega auction will play an important role in Amit’s career.
4. Imran Tahir
Chennai super kings have most number of aged players in their team and Imran Tahir who is 42 years old is among them. The legendary south African spinner was purple cap holder in 2018 but was mostly on bench last year. Even in phase 1 he did not get enough chance. Keeping the mega auction in mind Chennai might release him.
5. MS Dhoni
This might be the hardest one for Indian fans to absorb as MS Dhoni might get retire in next season. We have so many reasons to explain this. Firstly, he is selected as mentor for Indian team in T20 world cup 2021 which gives us the touch for Dhoni to start his career as a coach. Second is mega auction although csk will retain him if he announced his presence but chances are very less. Third and last is Dhoni is a kind of player who believes in giving chance to the youngsters and imparting experience in them. We might not see our childhood hero from next IPL.
