‘Situation like Sir Alex Ferguson..’: Vaughan assesses Ruturaj Gaikwad’s captaincy woes in presence of ‘God’ like MS Dhoni

Dhoni has been observed assisting the young batter this season in setting up the fields and other things after giving Gaikwad the captaincy.

Michael Vaughan, a former captain of England, believes that Ruturaj Gaikwad must find it difficult to lead the Chennai Super Kings while Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a legendary player, is still present in the locker room. Gaikwad’s time as captain of CSK started with back-to-back wins, but soon fizzled down with a string of defeats. However, their title defence was restarted on Monday with a victory over Kolkata Knight Riders.

Ruturaj: The Chose One

With the change in the leadership group, CSK signaled the beginning of the transitional phase when Gaikwad succeeded Dhoni as captain at the beginning of the season.

Vaughan speculated that with the great Dhoni still representing them in the dressing room, it might have been challenging for Gaikwad to take charge and lead the five-time champions.

‘Taken over from God’

He has taken over from a God. This situation is like Sir Alex Ferguson is still in the dressing room when the new manager comes in. MS Dhoni is still there. It must be so hard. It is difficult to captain MS but I think it is MS who took that decision to step aside,” Vaughan told Cricbuzz.

The renowned wicketkeeper has been observed assisting the young batter this season in setting up the fields and other things after giving Gaikwad the captaincy.
