“There have been no discussions regarding the matter. We will cross the bridge when the time comes. Dhoni is our captain. He is the first player of CSK and when he decides to step down, he will make that call. We are now focused on the auction,” a CSK source told InsideSport.IN.

MS Dhoni is currently in Chennai to prepare for IPL 2022 Auctions and a discussion of captaincy transition is likely to take place over the next 15 days. However, the final call will be Thala Dhoni’s. Despite non-performance as a batsman, he remains the fan favourite for his keeping and captaincy skills, not to forget, he led CSK to 4th IPL title after a disastrous show in 2020.
