Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg has opined that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise will have to find a player at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction, who is capable enough to captain the high-profile franchise.

Just a few days before the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 began, MS Dhoni decided to hand over the CSK captaincy to Jadeja.

However, Chennai Super Kings struggled under Jadeja’s captaincy as they won only 2 games and faced 6 defeats and Jadeja’s form with bat and ball also took a massive hit. So Jadeja decided to hand over the captaincy to Dhoni to focus and concentrate more on his game.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Brad Hogg said that Chennai Super Kings don’t have a player who can lead them in the future so they have to find someone at the IPL 2023 auction. However, he acknowledged that finding an Indian player would be very difficult for the franchise.

He asserted: “Who is going to take over from MS Dhoni at the end of this year? I can’t see a player on CSK’s team list that can captain this team effectively and efficiently.

“They will have to go to the auction next year to find a player of captaining ability, and try to find an Indian to do the job is going to be hard because all the best Indian T20 players have already been assigned to other franchises.”

They will have to go to an international player. It will be difficult to find a player that will fit in to the balance and the game plan that CSK already have in place.”

Hogg labelled CSK all-rounder Jadeja as one of the best in the world and said that he is a leader in his own right.

He elaborated: “He is one of the best all-rounders in the world, and he is the centrepiece of CSK’s lineup, so you have to take the pressure away from him. We have learned that Jadeja is not right for the role, but he is a leader in his own right. Sometimes you lead in different ways, so MS Dhoni had to take over the role.”
