The former England batsman backed his statement noting that the impact player rule will be helpful for Dhoni to elongate his IPL career. Also, in CSK’s last home game, the entire team along with Dhoni, was seen taking a lap of honor which has certainly created a buzz surrounding his retirement from the cash-rich league.

The former English cricketer also felt that the major impact the former Indian cricketer has had is with his captaincy and wicket-keeping, making the team even more challenging.

“I was there for Dhoni’s lap of honor on Sunday, and it was incredible to see how the stadium stayed completely full. I’d be extremely surprised if this is his last season. I think this impact player rule actually helps him tremendously, where he can keep for 20 overs and bat wherever he wants to bat,” Pietersen wrote in his column for Betway.

There have been many occasions when MS Dhoni has witnessed limping on the ground and even there were instances when Dhoni was seen using an ice pack on his knees. CSK coach, Stephen Fleming even said that the CSK skipper has been dealing with a knee injury. Kevin Pietersen also spoke about the matter.

“He’ll have the opportunity for eight or nine months of rest, sort his knee out, and get himself fit and ready for another season. I hope it’s not the last we see of Dhoni, and I know everybody in the country would want him to play another season,” Pietersen added.
