Who will be the next captain of CSK team after MS Dhoni?

Cricket fans are eagerly waiting for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. This tournament will start from 22nd March. But even before this, rumors have started that there may be some big changes in the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team, especially regarding the captaincy.

Now about a week is left for the start of the IPL 2024 season. In such a situation, can such a big reshuffle happen in the Chennai team? This is also a big question. But some time ago Dhoni himself had told through a Facebook post that he is going to be seen in a new role. In such a situation, fans are speculating that Dhoni may leave the captaincy and become a mentor or coach.

New captain of CSK team after MS Dhoni : Even in the 2022 season, the Chennai team had announced the appointment of Ravindra Jadeja as the new captain just 1-2 days before the start of the season. In such a situation, this time also the fans are still expecting a new captain or a new change by citing Dhoni's post. If there is a change in captaincy this time, then some players can be big contenders.

Ruturaj Gaikwad is at the forefront among the big contenders for captaincy. Apart from him, Ravindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane can also be considered contenders in the team in terms of experience. However, Jadeja was given the captaincy in the 2022 season. But then both his and the team's performance became very poor. Then Dhoni took command again in the middle of the season.

Besides, Jadeja's age may also come in the way of captaincy. He has turned 35 years old. Age is also a factor with 35 year old Rahane. Rahane played 14 matches for Chennai last season, in which he scored 326 runs at an excellent average of 32.60. During this period he had scored 2 fifties. In such a situation, if we look at the form and game, Rahane also looks a contender.
