Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni is all set to lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The Captain Cool has undergone a knee surgery last year to play in IPL 2024. However, it is obvious that his knees will only continue to wear out as he continues to play.

Under the circumstance, Dhoni’s former CSK teammate Ambati Rayudu has provided a unique suggestion for the wicketkeeper-batter to ensure he remains fit for longer durations and remains available for the side in crucial situations.

“With the impact player rule, he can take a back seat and promote someone to captain their side in the middle,” said Rayudu during a recent interaction.

“So this year might be a transition year for CSK if it’s his last year, if he decides to play for a few more years, I think he would be the captain. I would personally like him to see as a captain,” he added.

Though Dhoni has given no indications on whether the 2024 edition would be his last in the league, several fans and experts are saying that the veteran cricketer will hang up his boots after IPL 2024.
