“It is a call that every player needs to take and Dhoni will announce his. As per the discussions we had with MS, 2022 will be his last. That is the reason he wanted to pass on the mantle to Jadeja.

Why did Dhoni quit now? – At the beginning of the season, there was no hint that Dhoni will be stepping down as the captain. In fact, he was involved in all auction meetings and Jadeja wasn’t. But at the same time, age is not by his side and mistakes on the field as a player have started to creep in.

  • In IPL 2020, he averaged just 25.00 and in IPL 2021, he returned with just 16.28 average.
  • With the bat, he looked shaky and dropped a few catches behind the stumps as well.
  • With a new team at the helm, MS Dhoni wanted the next captain to take charge.
  • He handed over the reins to Ravindra Jadeja, who has been with the franchise since 2012 and is an integral member of the squad.

“Dhoni will continue to be an integral part of CSK, captain or not. As for his future, he will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond,” Kasi Viswanathan said.
