He handed over the mantle to Ravindra Jadeja after winning six titles with CSK. Now, the biggest question is whether he will move out of the Playing XI with poor batting form. Follow CSK IPL 2022 Live Updates on Insidesport.IN.

However, Dhoni isn’t retiring just yet. While CSK CEO refused to say whether he will continue to feature in CSK’s Playing XI owing to his poor form with the willow, he said Dhoni will continue to feature in CSK’s plans. But didn’t clarify in which role.

“Dhoni will continue to be an integral part of CSK, captain or not. He will be one of the decision-makers especially as he is still the wicketkeeper. As for his future, he will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond,”  Viswanathan said.

With Ravindra Jadeja leading a new-look CSK, the new captain could have his own plans. Dhoni has consistently pushed himself down the batting order. He now bats at 8 and that leaves the door open for others to come in, especially with three wicketkeepers in the team.

CSK vs KKR Probable batting order for CSK

1. Devon Conway, 2. Ruturaj Gaikwad, 3. Robin Uthappa, 4. Ambati Rayudu, 5. Shivam Dube, 6. Ravindra Jadeja, 7. Dwayne Bravo, 8. MS Dhoni, 9. Adam Milne, 10. Chris Jordan/Mitchell Santner, 11. Rajvardhan Hangargekar/KM Asif/P Solanki

Is Dhoni looking to move out of CSK Playing XI- It’s his batting number that could force him to rethink. In the last two years, his batting stats have gone downhill, with an average of 25.00 and 16.28 in 2020 and 2021 seasons respectively. Now, that the Thala will not be the captain, will he or the management will think of better alternatives and give promising talents a chance to prove their worth?
