CSK Captain 2022
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been a main part of CSK since 2012. He will now lead the Chennai Super Kings. He will be the only third player to lead CSK. Dhoni’s resignation from CSK captaincy is being designated as the end of an era. Authority hopes that this will permit a smooth transformation from old to new and give Jadeja the chance to work with the direction of one of the best captains ever, MS Dhoni as he is still playing for the team.
