CSK Captain IPL 2023: This auction was great for Chennai Super Kings. CSK was successful in buying England all-rounder Ben Stokes. Ben Stokes, who came for 16 crore 25 lakhs, is at the forefront of the race to become the next captain of Chennai. But Ruturaj Gaikwad is also involved in the race to become the next captain after MS Dhoni. CSK official gave an update regarding this.

Let us tell you that since 2008 till now there have been only 3 captains for Chennai Super Kings. Apart from MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja have become the captains of this team. Ravindra Jadeja was given the command of this team for the first-time last year, but his performance with the team was also poor. Dhoni had to take back the captaincy in the final matches. This time only Dhoni can start as the captain, but the captain can be changed in the middle of the IPL. Ben Stokes and Rituraj Gaikwad are in the race to lead the side, though Dhoni will continue to play in the team during this time.

CSK Captain IPL 2023: What did the CSK official say about Rituraj Gaikwad

An official of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) told SportsKia.com – We are all very happy to get Ben Stokes in the auction. He is not only a match winning player, but he is also a great captain. MS Dhoni will decide whether he will become the captain or not. When a foreign player becomes the captain of the team, there are always problems with the combination. If Ben Stokes doesn’t get the also for the next phase, then that will also be a problem. So that’s why young Rituraj Gaikwad cannot be ruled out of the race to become the captain.

Ben Stokes IPL 2023: Chennai has bought the most expensive Ben Stokes in the history so far. Several teams including Mumbai Indians were in the fray to pick up Ben Stokes. But Chennai won the successful bid. The team has bought Ben Stokes for Rs 16 crore 25 lakhs. Earlier Ben Stokes used to play for Rajasthan Royals.

Why Ruturaj Gaikwad can become the next captain of Chennai

25-year-old Rituraj Gaikwad can become the long-term captain for Chennai Super Kings. He leads the Maharashtra team at the domestic level, so he is a good option. He has been playing under Dhoni’s captaincy for the last many years, Dhoni would know his talent and leadership very well. Ben Stokes has more experience; he played a key role in helping England win the ODI and T20 World Cups. But the two problems for CSK are that he is a foreign player and secondly, he is an all-rounder. Only 4 foreigners are fed in a team, so if the captain is a foreigner, then there are problems in the combination of playing 11.
