MS Dhoni, a legend of the game who captained Team India in the past and now plays for the Chennai Super Kings, will take the helm of the franchise in the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). On September 4, the Chief Executive Officer of CSK, Kasi Viswanathan, affirmed the same thing (Sunday).
Here is the report:
The Yellow Army, which is captained by MS Dhoni, has been one of the most consistent teams during the duration of the franchise-based league. CSK has a perfect record in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and the team plans to defend its title throughout the forthcoming season.
MS Dhoni stepped down from CSK captaincy ahead of IPL 2022
It is important to note that the captain of the team that led India to win the World Cup and who had led the CSK team from the beginning of the Indian Premier League in 2008 gave up his position as captain only two days before the start of the IPL 2022 season. However, he regained his position as captain of the Chennai Super Kings halfway through the Indian Premier League 2022 season when star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja made the decision to stand down from the captaincy role and pass the reins of leadership to the Indian veteran.
In the Indian Premier League 2022, the Yellow Army did not perform well enough to go to the playoffs, which was a reflection of their disappointing season. The defending IPL champions, on the other hand, will be looking to continue their unrivaled run of success in the next season and win a fifth title overall in the most competitive franchise-based competition.
When asked whether he would be seen in Chennai Super Kings colors as a player in the next season, MS Dhoni said, “Definitely,” during the coin toss against Rajasthan Royals in an IPL 2022 game that took place in May. Dhoni explained the decision by saying, “It’s a simple reason: it would be unjust to not play in Chennai and say thank you.”
Many people believe that the all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja, won’t be seen wearing the yellow jersey during the next season due to the claimed conflict that exists between CSK and Jadeja. Nevertheless, there has not been any formal confirmation of the matter as of yet. However, given that Dhoni will continue in his job as captain, the likelihood of Jadeja taking over for him as captain seems to be low.
