The IPL 2021 may have been suspended midway this year due to the pandemic situation, but there are lots of interesting things waiting for the next edition in 2022. The franchises will have a lot of time to analyze the performers. the future of the team and their value to the team. Also, a mega auction is lined up for IPL 2022 which means there will be a lot of shuffling of both Indian and overseas players ahead of IPL 2022.
IPL 2022 will also be adding a couple of new teams in the tournament, making it a 10-team competition. This would bind certain franchises to change their combinations and captains for the next season. A change in captaincy may not be a bad thing for teams that have struggled this year and it is better if the franchise opts for it earlier rather than making it too late. With the mega auction likely to take place next year, it is time to look at probable captains of all the franchises in IPL 2022.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)- Ravindra Jadeja
MS Dhoni did a great job as the captain of the franchise this year, but he could announce his retirement from IPL soon, and this will be the best time for him to groom a captain who can do the job for the franchise in the longer run. Jadeja has performed really well in this IPL in all three departments and at the peak of his powers.
He smashed 37 runs in an over equalling the IPL record and was a live wire in the field always. He will be the probable captain of CSK and this will be a major boost for his confidence too. He scored 131 runs and picked up 6 wickets at an excellent economy rate this season in the 7 games he played in IPL 2021.
