IPL without Dhoni, it's tough to imagine: Sunil Gavaskar
Ever since the news of suspension of CSK and Rajasthan Royals from the IPL for the duration of two years came out, social media is full of reactions. However, in a favorable development for MS Dhoni, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has today opined that "it will be tough" to imagine an Indian Premier League edition without MS Dhoni, after the Supreme Court-appointed Justice Lodha Committee's decision.

"Yes, that is going to be very tough. However, MSD is only 34 years old and in a few years will be bidding goodbye to international cricket. In any case, it will be tough to imagine an IPL without Dhoni," said Gavaskar as reported by NDTV.

Gavaskar while sharing his opinion felt that obviously the players of CSK and Rajasthan Royals "must be feeling terrible" right now, but this being an important judgment, it cannot be taken lightly as three of the most eminent former Chief Justices of India have deliberated upon.

On a positive note, he said that since the next IPL is at least eight months away, it would not be difficult for the BCCI to find two new teams. "When IPL was floated, the idea was of an eight-team tournament and not a six-team tournament. It was decided to have an eight-team tournament which will be gradually increased to 10-teams. But I feel there is enough time to get two new teams."

It is really heartening to see MSD getting full support from one of the greatest Indian cricketer especially in this hour of crises. He deserves this owing to his tremendous contribution for the impeccable growth of the Indian cricket.
