About Replacing MS Dhoni as CSK Skipper

Ruturaj Gaikwad was named the captain of the Chennai Super Kings for the 2024 Indian Premier League, and to celebrate, Suryakumar Yadav posted a special message for the young player on social media.

Suryakumar Yadav of the Mumbai Indians took to social media to send a special message to Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has been named captain of the Chennai Super Kings for the IPL 2024 season. The franchise announced on Thursday that Gaikwad will take over as captain from MS Dhoni, sparking heated debate on social media. MS Dhoni has guided CSK to the IPL title five times, the joint-most of any captain, together with Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma. Suryakumar wrote on Instagram that Ruturaj will have to fill Dhoni’s large shoes, but that his ‘cool and serene’ demeanor will be a huge advantage.

The reality that you have large shoes to fill, Bhauu, cannot be denied. But you will carry on this team’s heritage in style, I’m convinced of it, because of your cool-headedness and composure. I’m wishing you luck and love,” he wrote.

“Every action taken by Dhoni serves the team’s best interests. It was shortly before the captains’ meeting that I learned of the decision. that’s his call, and you have to respect that,” CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI.

With a remarkable run of 590 runs at a strike rate of 147.50 in 16 games, the elegant opener had a remarkable year in 2017. In 16 games in 2021, he scored 635 runs, which was his breakthrough year.
