Talking about Dhoni, the former India captain was last seen in action this year in the IPL, where he led the CSK franchise in the latter part of the tournament.


Ravindra Jadeja was earlier announced as the captain of the franchise but after a few matches, the left-hander stepped down to focus on his game and then Dhoni chose to lead in the larger interest of the side.

CSK were unable to advance to the playoffs but Dhoni indicated that he would return to the franchise next year.
