MS Dhoni stepped down as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain on Thursday and now Ravindra Jadeja will be leading the franchise.
In a stunning development, MS Dhoni stepped down as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper just days before the first match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The CSK legend led the franchise to four IPL titles. Ravindra Jadeja will now be at the helm of the Chennai-based franchise.
"MS Dhoni has decided to hand over the leadership of Chennai Super Kings and picked Ravindra Jadeja to lead the team. Jadeja, who has been an integral part of Chennai Super Kings since 2012, will only be the third player to lead CSK. Dhoni will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond,” CSK stated.
Ravindra Jadeja has become only the third captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) after the legendary MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina, who was released by the franchise ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction.
As soon as the announcement was made public, fans took to Twitter to express their love for their beloved 'Thala'. Dhoni led CSK 204 times in the IPL, winning 121 games and losing 82. His win percentage was 59.6 in the cash-rich league. Under his tenure, CSK won 4 IPL titles and 2 Champions League T20 titles.
