Dhoni has been identified asat least one more season, in charge of the Yellow Army. The CSK captaincy was initially assigned to Ravindra Jadeja during IPL 2022. The choice, though, appeared to backfire because CSK only managed to win two of their first eight games, nearly eliminating them from postseason contention.
Significantly, Jadeja gave Dhoni the reins as captain midway through the competition. Only two of CSK’s final six games were victories under Dhoni’s captaincy, and they placed ninth in the standings. With four IPL championships, CSK is the second-most successful franchise in the league’s history.
