“Ravindra Jadeja has decided to relinquish captaincy to focus and concentrate more on his game and has requested MS Dhoni to lead CSK. MS Dhoni has accepted to lead CSK in the larger interest and to allow Jadeja to focus on his game,” said the franchise in an official release.
Jadeja has struggled in the tournament, scoring just 112 runs in 92 balls at a strike rate of 121.7, and has picked up just 5 wickets so far. He hasn’t helped Chennai turn around their fate since taking the captaincy and still searching for his form.
Fans were thrilled with MS Dhoni returning to the captaincy after having a bad season this year.
Just after Dhoni was handed the captaincy, he led the yellow army to their third win this season after openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Convoy put together a partnership of 182 against Sunrisers Hyderabad that helped CSK to put a total of 202. SRH managed to score 189, thus falling short by 13 runs.
Why Dhoni Handed The Captaincy To Jadeja This Season
CSK won their fourth IPL title last year under Dhoni, the former Indian Skipper wanted to prepare someone for this responsibility leading to Jadeja’s appointment as the captain
Chennai Super Kings Under Dhoni’s Captaincy
The Super Kings have won the IPL title four times(2010,2011,2018 and 2021) and have the highest win percentage of matches among all teams in the IPL under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Dhoni has captained 204 matches in the IPL winning 121, losing 82 and one match ended in a no result
MS Dhoni This Year
Dhoni has been in good touch with the bat and his best display came against Mumbai Indians when he won the watch for CSK after scoring 16 runs in the last over of Jaydev Unadkat.
