Dhoni Steps down as Captain of Chennai Super Kings


MS Dhoni has stepped down as captain of IPL side Chennai Super Kings with Ravindra Jadeja to take over ahead of the 2022 season starting this weekend.

Dhoni, 40, led Chennai to four IPL titles during his tenure as skipper, with last season’s triumph, achieved after a 27-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders in the final, following previous wins in 2010, 2011 and 2018.

The wicketkeeper, who had captained the team since 2008, will “continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond,” the franchise said in a statement.
