Ravichandran Ashwin exposes CSK’s agenda in MS Dhoni’s captaincy switch!! Reveals former Indian captain had already disclosed his plans

Although MS Dhoni leaving CSK captaincy came as a surprising event for many cricket fans, former CSK member Ravichandran Ashwin feels that it must be a well-planned decision. Ravichandran Ashwin believes that MS Dhoni must have told Ruturaj Gaikwad well in advance last year about the change in CSK captaincy.

MS Dhoni has stepped down as CSK skipper just one day ahead of IPL 2024. Ruturaj Gaikwad has been named as the new captain of Chennai Super Kings. The right-handed batter will lead the side in IPL 2024 with MS Dhoni as part of the team.

Chennai Super Kings will commence their journey in IPL 2024 with the tournament opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The CSK vs RCB, IPL 2024 match 1, takes place on Friday, March 22 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
