Chennai Super Kings’ hopes for qualifying for the playoffs ended Thursday after a team led by MS Dhoni ran into a five-goal loss to the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium. The CSKs who batted first were eliminated for 97 and eventually the Mumbai Indians scored a comfortable victory. Given that their hopes for the playoffs have been dashed, it would be interesting to see how the CSK proceeds to the last two league games, and it is also necessary to see whether Dhoni will return as captain of the CSK next season.
Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag said Ruturaj Gaikwad had shown that he was a good leader and could be someone who could lead the CSK forward.
“He is the captain of Maharashtra. He is very quiet by his behavior. Even if he gave 100, it does not seem from his behavior that he would give so many. Even though he has zero, his ways are the same. You cannot discern.” from his expressions that he is very happy after he gave 100, or is very sad when he gave 0. He is very calm, he showed all the glimpses of being a good captain, “Sehwag told Cricbuzz.
“He’s a captain in first-class cricket; he has an idea of how to control the game. Everyone can have a good season, if they play 3-4 seasons, they can be someone who can become a long-term captain after Dhhoni.” . I can only say my opinion, but the last call is with CSK. Why does everyone rate MS Dhoni very highly? He is very cool, he makes his own decisions and he has a lucky factor with him. But good luck to those who make bold decisions. So I think Ruturaj Gaikwad has all the qualities, I don’t know if he will bring the factor of happiness, but he has all the other qualities that MS Dhoni has, “he added.
During the current season, Gaikwad recorded 313 runs in 12 matches with an average of 26.08, with his highest score being 99 against SunRisers Hyderabad.
Former Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja also agreed with Sehwag, saying the captain’s options were lacking, so Ruturaj seems like the most likely choice.
“You have no choice. If you make someone captain after MS Dhoni, who would you go to? The only option you have is what Viru Sehwag said. Robin Uthappy’s time is gone, Ambati Rayud’s time is gone, Devon Conway “Dwayne Bravo won’t stay long either. If you look at the spin options, you’ve already tried Ravinda Jadeja. You’ve invested so much in Deepak Chahar, but his injury is like that, you don’t know what will happen to him? You never know about injuries,” said Jadeja. .
Before the start of IPL 2022, Dhoni resigned as captain of the CSK and Jadeja was given the reins of the team. However, eight games of the season, the captains were returned to Dhony because Jadeja wanted to focus on his own game.
CSK are currently in ninth place in the IPL points table with 8 points out of 12 matches.
