Although the last season was not good for Chennai and this team could not even reach the playoffs. This was the second time in the history of IPL when Chennai did not make it to the playoffs. Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni would like to make up for this in IPL-2023. He is trying to win his fifth title this time and for this he has included veteran players in the auction, one of whom is Ben Stokes. Started preparing to end his life.
Last season, the situation regarding the captaincy of Chennai was also seen as dumb. Before the start of the season, Dhoni gave up the captaincy and handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja, but Jadeja resigned from the captaincy in the middle of the season after a poor performance and the captaincy came again after Dhoni. This season too Dhoni will captain the team. Chennai has to play its first match against Gujarat Titans on 31 March in Ahmedabad.

Stokes is being considered as the future captain
This could possibly be Dhoni’s last IPL. Along with this, there is also the question that who will take the responsibility of captaining the team after Dhoni. When Stokes was bought by Chennai, speculations were being made that he could be the next captain of the team. Stokes is the captain of England’s Test team and England has achieved good success under his captaincy, so it has to be seen whether Chennai will hand over the captaincy to Stokes in future or not.
