Dhoni is currently in Mumbai leading Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021.

After last year's IPL in the UAE, Dhoni had cut himself off of competitive cricket and had spent all of his time with family.

The former India skipper did not feature in any domestic games leading up to the IPL and had heightened speculation about his future.

On Wednesday night, Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs in a thrilling finish.

With three victories from four matches, Chennai has now climbed to the top of the IPL 2021 points table with six points.

Meanwhile, the nation continues to be ravaged by the pandemic and over 2.95 new cases were reported over the past 24 hours.
