Former Rising Pune Supergiant skipper and one of the most valuable player in the IPL history, MS Dhoni, has ruled himself out of the upcoming edition of the IPL.
A source who is close to MSD has revealed that Dhoni is unhappy the way he has been sacked from the captaincy of the new IPL franchise. He will be playing IPL next year when the team of Chennai Super Kings would be back.
Dhoni has requested the RPS franchise to make the announcement a couple of days after he moves out of India so that he can be away from the media frenzy that will otherwise follow him once the news becomes public.
Please note: The above story is undiluted fiction and was just meant to be an April Fool prank. Please take it in the spirit of the day’s mood. We sincerely wish MS Dhoni continues to serve the IPL team and the Indian team for a long time to come.
