Just before the start of IPL 2022, the most successful captain of Chennai Super Kings, Mahendra Singh Dhoni left the captaincy of this team. After leaving the captaincy of the team, Dhoni selected Ravindra Jadeja as the next captain, who was retained by CSK this time for this season. MS Dhoni took this decision keeping in mind the future of the CSK team and thus an era of his captaincy came to an end.
MS Dhoni once again surprised everyone in his old style and took this decision. Earlier in international cricket too, Dhoni had abruptly left the captaincy of the Test team and then the captaincy of the ODI and T20 team. At the same time, he had suddenly taken retirement from international cricket and surprised everyone, but now the question is whether he is going to call this league bye-bye after leaving the captaincy of IPL.
After MS Dhoni, the captaincy of the CSK team has now been handed over to Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was associated with the CSK team in the year 2012. Since then, Jadeja has been playing under Dhonis captaincy and his performance as an all-rounder has been tremendous. On the other hand, Dhoni will no longer captain the CSK team. Dhoni was the most successful captain of IPL and till last season he had captained 204 matches in this league. Out of these, they won 121 matches, while 82 matches were lost, while two matches ended without any result. Ravindra Jadeja will become the third captain to captain CSK. Earlier MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina had captained the team.
MS Dhoni took over the command of the CSK team in the year 2008 and since then he was the captain of this team till the year 2021. Although this team was banned for two seasons in the middle, if left, Dhoni had captained this team in 12 seasons of IPL and made the team champion four times. Under his captaincy, CSK won the title in 2010, 2011, 2018, and 2021.
