Former team opener Virender Sehwag has suggested the name of Rituraj Gaikwad as Dhoni’s successor. He feels that Gaikwad is a capable and calm minded player like Dhoni.
- Sehwag wants this player to replace Dhoni as the captain of CSK
- Said to be a calm minded player like Dhoni
- CSK have tried Ravindra Jadeja this season
The 15th season of IPL is proving like a nightmare for Chennai Super Kings. The team is out of the race for the playoffs. Who will lead CSK in the upcoming season is also a big question. In fact, the team first appointed all-rounder player Ravindra Jadeja as its captain for the current season. But in view of the declining performance of the team led by Jadeja, once again the command of the team was given in the hands of Dhoni.
The current age of MS Dhoni is 40 years. He will turn 41 on July 7 next. In such a situation, he may hardly be able to enter the field as a player in the next season. Who will lead the team in the 16th season of IPL is a big question. In the midst of this entanglement of CSK, former explosive opener of the country Virender Sehwag has given advice. While advising the CSK team, he has said that Ruturaj Gaikwad can be chosen as Dhoni’s successor.

Not only this, Sehwag has also compared Gaikwad to Dhoni. Rituraj Gaikwad had scored the highest 635 runs in the last IPL season, and won the Orange Cap. At present also he is the highest scorer for CSK. Playing 12 matches for the team so far, he has scored 313 runs in 12 innings at an average of 26.08. During this, two half-centuries have come out of his bat.
Talking about Rituraj on Cricbuzz, Sehwag said, ‘He leads the team of Maharashtra. He plays with a calm mind. If he hits a century or gets out for a duck, his nature is the same in every situation. Looking at his face, it does not seem that he is very happy after scoring a century or very sad after getting out for zero. He has restraint and a calm mind. These are the best traits of being a captain, which are visible in him.

Sehwag further said, ‘The one who is leading the team in first class cricket has an idea how to move the match forward. He knows when to hand the ball to which bowler, and which batsman to field when needed. If Gaikwad is taking all these responsibilities in domestic cricket, then according to me he can become a better captain.
According to Sehwag, ‘People consider Dhoni a good captain because he runs the match calmly on the field. They decide correctly when to bring which bowler during the match, or when to field which batsman. Apart from this, Dhoni also gets the support of luck. Luck favors those who are fearless and take decisions with fearlessness. Everyone has seen Dhoni that he does not panic while taking decisions. I see all these qualities in Gaikwad too.
