The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League 2021 are about to start with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings on September 19. MS Dhoni-led franchise was second in the points table when the league was halted following the emergence of Covid-19 cases in the teams.
MS Dhoni was not in good touch during the first leg. He scored just 37 runs in seven appearances at a dismal average of 12.33.
With the mega auction taking place next year, there is a chance of seeing MSD in some other franchise. While Suresh Raina is the vice-captain of the franchise, Ravindra Jadeja has expressed his desire to lead the team. Recently, a fan page of Chennai Super Kings posted on Twitter. “Who would be your pick to captaining the CSK team after MS Dhoni?”
Jadeja came up with a cheeky reply and wrote: 8. Jadeja’s jersey number is 8 in the league. However, Jadeja decided to delete the tweet later.
