Ruturaj Gaikwad gets MS Dhoni treatment, receives deafening welcome in Hyderabad

Ruturaj Gaikwad was named as Chennai Super Kings' new captain just one day before the IPL 2024 season opener.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) may have changed captains, but the fans’ treatment of their skipper remains the same. With Ruturaj Gaikwad taking over the leadership role from MS Dhoni, CSK fans have decided to back their ‘new’ captain as much as they did their ‘old’.

After losing the toss in the SRH vs CSK match, Pommie Mbangwa asked about the team combination for the match. However, the CSK fans in the stadium decided to welcome Ruturaj Gaikwad with such a loud cheer that he failed to hear the presenter’s question. The opener had to request Pommie to repeat his question, saying, “Sorry, I couldn’t hear you. Can you please repeat the question?“.

Ruturaj Gaikwad makes 3 changes vs SRH

Chennai Super Kings have made three changes to their Playing XI. Mustafizur Rahman will miss the match owing to a VISA issue, while Matheesha Pathirana is out due to a niggle. Moeen Ali, Maheesh Theekshana, and Mukesh Chowdhary join in.

CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad(c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni(w), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana.

Impact Substitutes: Shardul Thakur, Shaik Rasheed, Mitchell Santner, Sameer Rizvi, Mukesh Choudhary.
