MS Dhoni To Take-over Captaincy Duties From Ravindra Jadeja
Before the beginning of this season, Dhoni had given over the captaincy to Jadeja. Nonetheless, the side currently winds up at the 9th spot in the IPL points table and they face a daunting struggle to meet all requirements for the playoff games.
In eight matches this season, Jadeja has been able to score only 112 runs and taken only 5 wickets with the ball in his hands.
Meanwhile, Dhoni has shown great form with the bat and, surprisingly, assisted CSK with digging out from a deficit to overcome Mumbai Indians. In that game, Dhoni crushed 16 runs off the last four balls to take the reigning champs over the line.
CSK will face SRH in their next game on 1st May at the MCA Stadium, Pune.
