Former Indian captain MS Dhoni shocked the world again by stepping down as captain of the Chennai Super Kings just days before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. the opening match of IPL 2022 this Saturday (March 26).
Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan has revealed that Dhoni is already planning to retire as captain and is waiting for the right moment. "He announced the decision at a team meeting today after training. But he has already figured it out. MS thinks that Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) is ready to take the mantle and take the lead in its best form, "said CSK CEO on sports channel.
According to the report, CSK insiders said they were shocked when Dhoni informed the CEO this morning of his decision. He also said he would like to speak with President of India Cements and former President of the Cricket Control Council of India (BCCI) N. Srinivasan.
At 10 a.m., a request was made by Srinivasan's office of the CSK team's CEO in Mumbai. In the afternoon, Dhoni called Mr. Srinivasan and informed him of his decision. People near Dhoni say that Srinivasan was also surprised at first, but at the end of the conversation he understood. The call lasted about 10 minutes.
After the phone call, Dhoni informed the entire team at the team meeting of his decision, as did Virat Kohli when he left Captain Trial earlier this year. At the players' meeting, Ravindra Jadeja was announced as the captain of CSK.
The only time Dhoni saw the eyes read at the public meeting was in 2018, when CSK returned to the IPL. Young, he was emotional and saw the connection. It's Chennai's own 'Thala' that can never go wrong. He is the captain of their souls; they believe he is 'Invictus' and why not? No IPL franchise was included in the nine finals of the IPL in 12 issues (please note that they were suspended twice).
His captain's art is based on two basic features - common sense and instinct. It is common sense that T20 cricket games do not get too complicated when setting up a template and setting it up properly.
Instinct comes with a clear idea of which player will be able to perform specific tasks and what he sees in it? Lots of courage and a bit of gaming. He never relied on analytics, long and tortuous team meetings, a 'team catalyst', a baseball coach as a strong player and kind expressions.
He therefore relies on proven international players and adapted some at home. Whether it's Dwayne Bravo or Faf du Plessis, or Josh Hazlewood, or as Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Jadeja or Ruturaj Gaikwad, they are selected based on the specific roles they can play each year.
