Former World Cup winning Indian captain MS Dhoni has stunned the cricket fraternity once again ahead of the upcoming Indian Premiere League with the decision to step down as Chennai Super Kings skipper which has left even the CEO of CSK Kasi Viswanathan shocked.
Just two days before the start of IPL and CSK’s opening game against KKR, MS Dhoni stepped down as captain and handed over the captaincy to all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Now Jadeja will lead the side against KKR in the opening game of this year’s IPL at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Surprised at the sudden decision of Dhoni, Viswanathan said that he was also taken aback. However, he said that he knew this will happen one day but the timing has surprised him. Vishwanathan also revealed that Dhoni has hinted about his plans about Jadeja as the new leader for CSK during IPL 2021.
