CSK's current captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has left for Chennai to plan for the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 2022. This could be Dhoni's last term as the captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He wants to find a strong track for this year's mega auction. For this purpose, he has reached Chennai about two weeks ago. The mega auction for the next season of IPL will be held on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru. All teams will be formed from the beginning of this time. Due to this, all the teams have done extensive practice work.
According to reports, Dhoni may possibly join the auction. Let me tell you that Dhoni has not yet given up the captaincy and there is no talk of handing over the command to Jadeja so far. They said they'll know when the time comes. At the moment, Dhoni is our captain. If he wants to give up the captaincy, it will be his decision. Our focus at the moment is only and only on auction. Let me remind you that under Dhoni's captaincy, Chennai won the trophy for the fourth time last season.
From next season (2022), two new clubs Lucknow and Ahmedabad will join the league. Both clubs have also retained 3 players each. As per rules, eight teams of the earlier have 4-4 players. Apart from captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, defending champions Chennai Super Kings have retained Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Let me tell you that the start of the IPL can be in the last week of March or the first week of April.
