Captain Total is back
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has once again become the captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Ravindra Jadeja has shocked everyone by deciding to step down as captain in the middle of the tournament. Chennai Super Kings announced this in a press release on Saturday. This has happened at a time when Chennai Super Kings have not had a great season and the team is on the verge of exiting the tournament.
CSK issued a statement
This information was given by Chennai Super Kings in a statement issued on Saturday. “Ravindra Jadeja has appealed to MS Dhoni to take charge of the Chennai Super Kings so that he can focus on his game,” CSK said in a statement. MS Dhoni has accepted the appeal in the interest of the team and has decided to take over the captaincy himself. The next match of Chennai Super Kings is on Sunday i.e. 1st May. Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead the team when Chennai Super Kings take on Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Jadeja became captain at the start of the season
Even before this IPL, Chennai Super Kings had handed over the reins to Ravindra Jadeja. Mahendra Singh Dhoni decided to step down as captain just two days before the start of the IPL and made Jadeja his successor. But this season has not been the best for the Chennai Super Kings. CSK have lost consistently in their opening matches and have won just 2 of the 8 matches they have played so far.
Suddenly the captain changed again
All were stunned when Ravindra Jadeja was made captain just before the season. The Chennai Super Kings, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, have won the IPL title four times, but the sudden departure of MS Dhoni from the captaincy did not go unnoticed by the fans. But now once again MS Dhoni has suddenly become the captain of the team and now he will lead the team.
