Ruturaj Gaikwad Appointed As New Captain Of CSK Ahead Of IPL 2024

The end of an fantastic captain and leader just came a day before of first match of CSK. Yes you heard it right, Ms Dhoni’s journey as a CSK captain came to end in a unexpected way before the IPL 2024 season.

Now, all the responsibility directly goes to young lad Ruturaj Gaikwad as he has been named as a new captain of Chennai Super Kings for IPL 2024. It was expected that after MS. Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja or Ruturaj Gaikwad can take over the post of CSK captainship.

Moreover, choosing a young and promising player as a captain is an absolutely perfect decision made by the CSK management and Ms. Dhoni itself.

Therefore, all the CSK fans were not even aware of the fact that 2023 IPL final of CSK against GT was the last game of Ms. Dhoni as Chennai Super Kings Captain.

What Can We Expect From Gaikwad As CSK Captain? 

Ruturaj Gaikwad new CSK captain.

Everyone knows that the number of achievements CSK achieved under Dhoni’s captaincy is insane and a young captain like Gaikwad cannot match the legacy of Dhoni in his starting years as CSK captain.

Moreover, we can definitely expect Ruturaj Gaikwad to be a promising captain as he will be under the guidance of MS.Dhoni in IPL 2024 where he can nourish his captaincy skills.

The young, fearless and attacking mindset of Gaikwad might be seem in all of their players which is actually a good sign for the team as it will bring the best out of the players.

Furthermore, it will be quite unfair if everyone starts to judge the captaincy of Gaikwad on the basis of his 1st IPL season as CSK captain, all the fans and management should at least back him for initial 2-3 years.

The Greatest Captain Of IPL 

MS dhoni stepped down as CSK Captain.

Yes, it is quite disheartening to know the fact the we are going to see MS. Dhoni just as a player in his remaining IPL career and not being able to provide a farewell game as CSK captain.

Ms.Dhoni led the CSK into 12 playoffs out of 14 IPL season and played 10 IPL finals by having 5 IPL titles as a captain. These are enough to describe why he is considered as greatest captain of IPL.

Start Of New Chapter For CSK 

Now after announcing a tough decision for all the IPL fans, CSK is all set to start their new IPL chapter under the new skipper, Ruturaj Gaikwad against RCB on 22nd march, 2024.

It will be quite interesting to see the captaincy and decision making skills of Gaikwad under pressure situation, I personally thinks that he is the best option who can carry forward the legacy of Ms. Dhoni’s captainship.
