Chennai Super Kings captain, Mahendra SIngh Dhoni has reportedly told the management that he can go back in the auction pool before the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League.

The three times IPL winning captain is open to going back into the auction pool so that CSK can get him back at a lower price.

According to a report by Times of India, a CSK source was quoted as saying, “There will be a big auction before the 2021 IPL and Dhoni has told us that he will play the tournament. So, there’s no question of his retirement from the T20 version anytime soon.”

“He said he can go back to the auction pool. That will give CSK the option of using the right-to-match card to pick him, maybe for a lower price. Being the captain that he is, Dhoni is ready to sacrifice money for CSK.”

“We know what Dhoni means to us. We don’t want him to go back to the auction pool,” the source added.

Dhoni has been on a sabbatical since India's semifinal exit from the ODI World Cup in England in July. He has missed the tour of the West Indies and the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh.
