MS Dhoni comes back as Chennai Super Kings skipper

Before the start of the Indian Premier League, Dhoni stepped down as the captain of Chennai Super Kings shocking his fans.

In a surprising move, Chennai Super Kings skipper Ravindra Jadeja has decided to relinquish captaincy and hand it over to MS Dhoni on Saturday.

Earlier, before the start of the Indian Premier League, Dhoni stepped down as the captain of Chennai Super Kings shocking his fans.

The return of Dhoni as a captain was announced by CSK through Twitter. They said that Jadeja has decided to relinquish captaincy to focus and concentrate more on his game & has requested MS Dhoni to lead CSK.

The team further stated that MS Dhoni has accepted to lead CSK in the larger interest & to allow Jadeja to focus on his game.

Jadeja’s own game has also suffered due to the pressure that comes with leadership responsibility as he has scored only 112 runs and taken five wickets in the eight games so far.

CSK have lost six out of their eight matches so far and Jadeja wants to concentrate more on his game. They are scheduled to clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad in Pune on Sunday.

While CSK won their fourth IPL title under Dhoni with a ‘Dad’s Army’ last year, the legendary former India skipper wanted to prepare someone for this responsibility and thus, the second senior-most player Jadeja was thrust into the leadership role.
