Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan has confirmed that former India captain MS Dhoni will lead the team in the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, Dhoni gave up the CSK captaincy in IPL 2022 as Ravindra Jadeja was named the captain but returned towards the later part once again.
“There is no change in our stance. We never said that there will be a change,” said Kasi Vishwanathan to InsideSports while confirming that MS Dhoni will continue to lead the team. Meanwhile, the news of Dhoni leading the team in IPL 2023 has given a massive reason for fans to celebrate.
Meanwhile, as per reports Ravindra Jadeja was upset after he was removed as CSK captain and thus is keen on parting ways with the franchise as well. However, Jadeja has been one of the star performers for the franchise but he might not play for the CSK in IPL 2023.
“It’s clear he is unhappy and very hurt. He will look for the options, let’s see how things pan out”, said the person who works closely for Ravindra Jadeja.
Meanwhile, the upcoming season might be MS Dhoni’s last as a player also. Since IPL 2020, MS Dhoni has been saying that he wants to play his final IPL match in Chennai, however, due to COVID, CSK couldn’t play in Chennai. The IPL 2023 is likely to be played all across India and Dhoni might get his wish fulfilled as well.
