IPL 2022: After MS Dhoni retires as CSK captain, Virat Kohli’s message to him | Cricket News

While MS Dhoni has stepped down as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain, his former Indian team-mate Virat Kohli shared an emotional message for him. It is known that Kohli and Dhoni share a close bond and the former congratulated the iconic wicketkeeper-batsman for a great term as captain, during which he led CSK to four Indian Premier League (IPL) titles. “Legendary captaincy in yellow ship. A chapter fans will never forget,” Kohli wrote in his tweet. “Always respect,” he added, with red and yellow heart emojis.

CSK announced today that Dhoni will hand over the captaincy to versatile player Ravindra Jadeja, just two days before the defending champions will play Kolkata Knight Riders in the season opener.

Meanwhile, Kohli has also stepped down as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain ahead of next season, with former CSK star Faf du Plessis now leading the team.

Dhoni has been CSK’s captain since the first season of the IPL in 2008, leading them to four IPL titles in 12 years. He also led them to two Champions League T20 titles.

He also led the team to the IPL trophy in his final year as captain when they beat KKR in the final to win their fourth trophy.


Jadeja and Dhoni were both retained by CSK before IPL 2022, along with Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
