Not Jadeja, MS Dhoni to stay CSK captain
CRICDOT DESK : MS Dhoni has hinted that IPL 2022 could be his last, but Chennai Super Kings is tightly closed about his future. There was speculation that MS Dhoni would take over the role of captain to Ravindra Jadeja. However, no transition has been made for the time being, according to CSK officials.
MS Dhoni said at the IPL 2021 title celebration that he would like to play the final IPL match at the Chepok Stadium in Chennai. However, MS Dhoni does not promise to call this season as BCCI will host IPL 2022 in Mumbai and Pune, and the Covid19 pandemic is unlikely to cause this season.
“There was no discussion on this issue. When the time comes, we will cross the bridge. Doni is our captain. He is the first player of CSK and if he decides to resign, he will do that. Make a decision. We are currently focusing on auctions, “a CSK source told InsideSport.IN.
MS Dhoni is currently in Chennai in preparation for the 2022 IPL auction and may discuss captain changes in the next 15 days. However, the last call will be the Taradoni call. Inefficient as a batter, he continues to be a fan favorite for his keeping and captain skills, not to mention leading CSK to his fourth IPL title after a disastrous show in 2020.
