MS Dhoni may step down as captain in the middle of IPL 2023. The mega auction for the upcoming IPL season will take place next month.
Meanwhile, some big news comes out every day. In the meantime, if some media reports are to be believed, there may be a big change in last year’s champion team and the MS Dhoni-led CSK franchise.
Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, many times Chennai Super Kings won this trophy, so if this is real, then this is devastating news for CSK fans.
Other than MS Dhoni CSK retain these players
Before the mega auction to be held next month, Chennai Super Kings decided to retain four players.
The list included the names of captain MS Dhoni, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, starter Rituraj Gaikwad and English all-rounder Moeen Ali.
In such a situation, now, if some reports are to be believed, next year Ravindra Jadeja can be seen captaining this team.
Although no official announcement has been made so far, it is also unknown how long MS Dhoni will continue to play IPL.
Therefore, it will be known soon if MS Dhoni will play the full IPL 2023 season or announce his retirement only after playing the opening match.
This player can take the place of MS Dhoni
The versatile Ravindra Jadeja can lead CSK if MS Dhoni leaves the captaincy midway through IPL 2023.
Jadeja has played a total of 200 matches in her IPL career so far, in which she has scored 2386 runs while also taking 127 wickets.
CSK all-round star Ravindra Jadeja made his IPL debut for Rajasthan Royals in 2008.
Following this, he captured the IPL title in the first season.
Jadeja returned to the Chennai team in the year 2018 and this year the team became champions for the third time.
Since then, Ravindra Jadeja has been a part of this team continuously and has proven to be the biggest match winner on his team.
After this Jadeja was part of many teams including Kochi Tuskers and Gujarat Lions. So in this term, if CSK picks Jadeja, that's also a correct pick.
