While all the teams are looking for a new captain in IPL 2022, there were many questions regarding the captaincy of CSK i.e. Chennai Super Kings. Even before the retention of IPL 2022, CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had said that it is not decided how long I will play.
At the same time, he had said that I do not want CSK to retain me by spending crores of rupees because I do not think that I will play for three years. After this, even when Chennai’s IPL victory was celebrated, Dhoni said such things, which led to speculations about his retirement. After this the retention list of CSK.
In this list, CSK gave the first retention not to its captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni but to Ravindra Jadeja. Ravindra Jadeja got the first retention for Rs 16 crore, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni was given the second retention for Rs 12 crore. The third retention was given to Rituraj Gaikwad for Rs.6 crore, Moeen Ali for Rs.8 crore. After giving the second retention to Mahendra Singh Dhoni, it was being speculated whether Ravindra Jadeja would be the captain instead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Many cricket experts were also speculating that now by making Ravindra Jadeja the captain, Dhoni will guide them.
Now the picture is getting clear in this matter. It has been claimed in a media report that at present, Dhoni will be the captain of Chennai. According to the report, when a CSK official was talked to, he said that there is no confusion in the matter of captaincy at the moment. Dhoni was our captain. We are making a strategy going forward.
