Dhoni Announces Ravindra Jadeja As CSK Captain Ahead Of IPL

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has handed over the captaincy reins at Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to Ravindra Jadeja, ahead of the start of the 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The development comes just two days before CSK opens their campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders in Mumbai in the season opener at Wankhede Stadium. Dhoni, who was bought by CSK in the inaugural season in 2008, has led CSK to 4 titles in his 12 seasons as captain. Under Dhoni, CSK established themselves as the most consistent franchise in the league, qualifying for the play-offs every season barring one.
