CSK Surprise: Dhoni Steps Down, Gaikwad Named New Captain Ahead of IPL 2024

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) stunned fans with a major announcement ahead of IPL 2024. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the iconic captain of the team, has decided to step down from his leadership role. The official CSK handle revealed that Dhoni will be succeeded by Ruturaj Gaikwad, the young opener of the team.

The decision came to light during the customary pre-season photoshoot with the trophy, where Dhoni was notably absent. Instead, Ruturaj Gaikwad represented the team as its new captain.

This marks the end of an epic era led by Dhoni, who has overseen the IPL since its establishment in 2008. Though Dhoni briefly handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja in 2022, he returned to lead the side to victory in 2023.

Dhoni’s tenure as captain has been unmatched, with CSK winning a total of 5 IPL titles under his leadership. His retirement brings an end to CSK’s golden period, leaving behind a legacy of achievement and domination in the cricketing world.
