CSK bought Ben Stokes for Rs 16.25 crore.
MS Dhoni left the captaincy in the last season.
new Delhi. In the auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023), it rained heavily on the players of England. One of them was also the name of English team captain Ben Stokes. Stokes has been included in his camp by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for Rs 16.25 crore. Since then, Stokes and MS Dhoni (MS Dhoni) are the subject of much discussion. It is believed that the English captain can take charge of the team in the upcoming season. Chennai CEO Kashi Vishwanath has given a big update regarding this issue.
It is very difficult for CSK to get a captain like MS Dhoni. Under the leadership of Mahi, the Chennai team has won the title four times. Even in IPL 2023, CSK fans are eager to see Dhoni as the captain. But it is being speculated that Ben Stokes can replace Mahi for the captaincy in the upcoming season. Kashi Vishwanath has told that the final decision will be taken by Dhoni in this regard. Chennai’s performance in the last season was quite disappointing.
Dhoni was happy to meet Stokes – Ben Stokes
Regarding the captaincy of the team, the CEO of Chennai said on ESPN Cricinfo, ‘We are excited to have Ben Stokes in the team. We were also lucky because he eventually came to our team. However, we wanted an all-rounder and MS Dhoni was more than happy to get Stokes. Regarding the captaincy, MS Dhoni has to decide on it in time.
Dhoni left the captaincy last season
In IPL 2022, Mahi handed over the captaincy of CSK to Ravindra Jadeja two days back. But Jadeja could not tolerate this pressure and handed over the command of the team back to Dhoni. Now it has to be seen whether Mahi will lead CSK in the upcoming season or not.
