Who will lead Chennai after Dhoni? Will the Indian player come from outside the team?

MS Dhoni is a passion for the Chennai Super Kings. Despite retiring from world cricket in 2020, Dhoni played for Chennai for two more seasons. Once out of the playoffs. But he made a comeback next time by winning the title. The former Indian captain is likely to stay with Chennai next season as well. But who will lead the team in the 40-year-old stepping down? I know 3 potential players.

Ravindra Jadeja

Ravindra Jadeja is one of the key players being considered by CSK management for the captaincy. Jadeja has been one of the top three players in the Chennai team for the last eight years. If Chennai decides to take Jadeja in the mega auction, it is likely that he will be the captain.

KL Rahul

If a player is brought in as captain from outside the existing Chennai team, KL Rahul will be most interested in team management. Rahul has led the Punjab Kings for the last two seasons. The team was eliminated without even seeing the playoffs. It is reported that Rahul also wants to move out of Punjab. In the mega-auction, there will be a fierce battle between Chennai and Bangalore for Rahul.
