In a significant move ahead of the 2024 season of the TATA IPL, Ruturaj Gaikwad has assumed the captaincy of the Chennai Super Kings, taking over from the legendary MS Dhoni.

Dhoni's Illustrious Legacy

MS Dhoni bids farewell as one of the most decorated captains in the IPL history. His tenure saw CSK clinch five titles (2010, 2011, 2018, 2021, and 2023), making them one of the most successful teams in the league. With an impressive record of leading CSK in 235 matches and captaining in 226 IPL games, Dhoni leaves behind a legacy of consistency and success.

Gaikwad's Ascension

Ruturaj Gaikwad emerges as the new leader for CSK, having proven himself as a pivotal player since the 2020 season. With 1797 runs from 52 matches at an average of 39.06, including one century and 14 half-centuries, Gaikwad's contribution to the team's success has been significant.

A Leader On and Off the Field

Gaikwad's leadership skills are not untested, having previously captained India in T20Is. His leadership prowess was highlighted by leading the team to their historic gold medal win at the 2023 Asian Games in Hangzhou. With his experience and form, Gaikwad aims to lead CSK to further glory in the upcoming IPL season.

A New Era Dawns

As Ruturaj Gaikwad assumes the captaincy reins, a new chapter begins for the Chennai Super Kings. Fans eagerly anticipate seeing how Gaikwad will steer the team forward and build upon the rich legacy left behind by MS Dhoni.
