R Jadeja to captain CSK in IPL 2022

R Jadeja to captain CSK in IPL 2022

Ravindra Jadeja will captain Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming IPL 2022 after MS Dhoni, who headed the CSK team since the first tournament season in 2008 bar the two years when the team was banned, announced his decision to step down from the leadership position.

 The franchise confirmed the news on their website, adding that "Dhoni will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond."

"MS Dhoni was thinking about it," Viswanathan said. "He felt it is the right time to hand over captaincy to Jaddu [Jadeja]. He feels Jaddu is also in prime form of his career and it is the ideal time for him lead CSK. What will be good for the franchise must be [in the] back of his mind."

Jadeja, who has been with the franchise since 2012, will become the third player to lead the Super Kings side, after Dhoni and Suresh Raina.

Viswanathan said that while Dhoni did not personally tell him before, the decision has not been a surprise. The franchise already discussed the topic even before the 2021 IPL and alerted Jadeja at the time.

"He [Jadeja] has been talked to earlier. Even last year, there was a proposal. We knew Ravindra Jadeja would be the best person to succeed, MS Dhoni."
