IPL 2022 LIVE: Ravindra Jadeja relinquished CSK’s captaincy just after 8 games in IPL 2022. CSK won just 2 games under him. Jadeja’s own performance with both ball and ball dipped considerably. Just ahead of the clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday, the franchise announced that MS Dhoni will once again take over the reins of the team. The franchise just prior to the start of IPL 2022 had announced Jadeja as their new skipper. In their statement, they had mentioned that they were looking ahead to the future.

MS Dhoni wanted Jadeja to get the experience to lead the side. But 8 games into the tournament and with just 2 wins, the pressure of captaincy built on Jadeja. He eventually handed it back to MS Dhoni. The management said that the decision was in the best interest of the team. But the question arises, what happens when MS Dhoni retires from the IPL. Who will lead the franchise then? Because that is inevitable.

In the 2022 IPL Mega Auctions, CSK went in with the aim to build a team for the future. CSK retained Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, and Ruturaj Gaikwad ahead of the Mega Auctions. The retention of MS Dhoni hinted that he would captain the side. In the auctions though, CSK once again got back the same players who had played for them between 2018-and 2021. The likes of Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa, and Dwayne Bravo were bought back in the auction.

The franchise did not seem to be bothered about looking at any current Indian international who could play for a longer time at the franchise. They did get back Deepak Chahar but he got injured ahead of the tournament. The squad overall looked promising, because as a team they had a stellar record to show. But then once the tournament started under the new leadership of Ravindra Jadeja, things did not seem to be going well for the 4-time champions.

In the first couple of games, it seemed that crucial calls were still taken by MS Dhoni. This was something that Dhoni himself admitted in the post-match presentation after the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Jadeja was expected to fully take over after the first couple of games. But the pressure got to him. He couldn’t handle the pressure as it affected his overall game. He, therefore, had no choice but to hand over the captaincy back to MS Dhoni.

“I think Jadeja knew last season he’d be captaining this year. For the first two games, I oversaw his work and let him be later. I insisted he’d take his own decisions and responsibility for them. You cannot spoon-feed everything to them. Once you become captain, it means a lot of demands come in and can affect the player’s performance and occupy their mind which I think was the case with him. I think captaincy burdened his prep and performances, it meant he could not go with the bat and ball with the same intensity”,

MS Dhoni had revealed why Jadeja resigned from captaincy.

But CSK going back to MS Dhoni means that Jadeja won’t be considered for the role anytime soon. Shivam Dube who has done well for the franchise can’t be considered for the top job yet. Deepak Chahar who has done so well for the team can be an option. He has leadership experience as well. But he is injury prone. So he too can’t be considered. That leaves the franchise with just one other option, Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Gaikwad is 25, he has been with the Indian team for the last 1 year now. He has experience in leading Maharashtra in domestic cricket. But he too has struggled for form in IPL 2022. That leaves the question, will the franchise be willing to throw the youngster in the deep end just yet? Only time will tell what path CSK chooses to go with.
