MS Dhoni took over as captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) once more after Ravindra Jadeja decided to step down as captain in the ongoing India Premier League (IPL) 2022. Jadeja’s tenure as captain did not produce the desired results. As CSK suffered a string of defeats, dropping them to the bottom half of the IPL 2022 Points Table. CSK can be expected to be at their lethal best now that Dhoni is back in charge. As evidenced by their impressive 13-run win over SRH in their last match.
