Indian Premier League 9: Playing cricket for another five years would be good, says Mahendra Singh Dhoni

New Delhi: He might not be in the best of form, but India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is keen on playing cricket for the next five years.

According to a report in Cricket Country, the Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) skipper said that he wouldn’t mind playing for 10 more years, but if he manages to play for five more years, it would be really great for him.

Dhoni's comments came during the post-match presentation ceremony of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 against hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

After suffering four losses in a row, there was finally some relief for Dhoni and his boys who registered a 34-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in a rain-interrupted match.

Despite that win, RPS are languishing at the sixth position in the points table ahead of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
