Ruturaj will be stripped of CSK captaincy..!?

Irfan Pathan has warned that Ruturaj Gaikwad's captaincy may be taken away from the 2024 IPL series. Ruturaj Gaikwad was appointed as the captain of the chennai Super Kings team at the start of this year's IPL series. dhoni, who had been the captain of CSK for 16 years, stepped down from the captaincy as he was said to be retiring this year. Irfan Pathan has said that now everyone believes that Ruturaj is the permanent captain of the chennai Super Kings team andhis captaincy may be taken away.

CSK is yet to qualify for the playoffs in the 2024 IPL. CSK will surely qualify for the playoffs only if they win their last league match against royal challengers Bangalore on Saturday. Irfan Pathan has warned that if CSK does not make it to the play-offs, then Ruturaj Gaikwad's captaincy may be stripped like Jadeja's captaincy in the 2022 IPL series. Jadeja was announced as the captain of the CSK team during the 2022 IPL series. However, at the end of the first eight matches, CSK lost the chance to advance to the play-offs due to a series of defeats. After that, the captaincy was taken away from Jadeja and Dhoni became the captain of CSK again.

A similar situation may recur. Therefore, Pathan said that Ruturaj should make CSK win the match against royal challengers Bangalore. "Many people in the CSK team are injured. The team is playing under the leadership of a new captain. dhoni is not the captain of the team. So the CSK team is in a difficult position," Pathan said.
