In IPL-2021, some players may be seen for the last time, some of them may retire and some may have to face the neglect of the teams.
IPL 2021 will end today. As soon as the match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders ends at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, the 14th season of the league will get its winner and possibly with this the IPL career of some players will also come to a halt. Next year there is going to be a big auction of IPL where all the teams will give a new look to themselves. In such a situation, it is difficult to bet on some players. We are going to tell you about those players whose IPL career will probably end with this season.
The first name among these players is Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. This could be Dhoni’s last IPL. It was not clear whether Dhoni would play next year or not in the statement he made during a toss about this. Yes it was definitely clear that he would be in the yellow jersey, in what form it will be known only next year. Dhoni is counted among the most successful captains from IPL. So far this has happened only once when the team of Chennai has not reached the IPL playoffs. Dhoni has played a total of 219 matches in IPL so far and has scored 4746 runs.
Imran Tahir also plays for Chennai but recently he is not getting a place in the last-11. This 41-year-old player has played only one match this season. Given his age, no team would like to bet on Tahir. He has played 59 matches in IPL so far and has taken 83 wickets in his name.
Suresh Raina’s career is also on its slopes. His bat has remained calm this season. The result is that Dhoni did not make him a place in the last-11 in the last few matches of the team. There is also a possibility that Chennai will not retain him and considering Raina’s form, no team should bet on him even in the auction.
In place of Raina, Chennai included Robin Uthappa in the last-11. Uthappa, who has been failing for the past few seasons, played a brilliant innings in the first qualifier. But still Uthappa’s age of 35 and failure in the IPL continuously in the last few years can come in the way of him. He played in Kolkata for a long time but this team left him. Rajasthan added Uthappa but he failed. Then Chennai bought Uthappa. After this IPL, Uthappa can also be included in the list of players whose career will end.
Harbhajan Singh has been out of Team India for a long time. He keeps sitting on the bench even in IPL. Harbhajan, who won IPL with Mumbai and Chennai, is currently in Kolkata. He has played three matches this season but has not been able to take a single wicket. Harbhajan may not appear in IPL next season.
