Ravi Shastri had said that India will get new captains from IPL. Sunil Gavaskar had said that Jadeja will be the new captain of Chennai. It was only after this that the Chennai Super Kings officially made Jadeja the captain of the team.
The appointed new captain of CSK
Chennai Super Kings has appointed Jadeja as the new captain of the team two days before the start of IPL 2022. Chennai team has changed its captain for the first time in the history of IPL. Dhoni had remained the captain of the team since 2008 and he played every match of the IPL under his captaincy. Dhoni will play an IPL match for the first time under the captaincy of another player. The predictions of the two Indian legends have come true as soon as Jadeja became the captain. V Shastri had said that India will get a new captain from the IPL. Sunil Gavaskar had said that Jadeja will be the new captain of Chennai.
Contenders to become captain if Jadeja’s performance is good
If Jadeja’s performance as the captain of Chennai is good, he can also be a contender to become the captain of Team India. However, the Indian cricket board would not be in favor of giving the captaincy to 33-year-old Jadeja. After Rohit, young players like Rishabh Pant or Lokesh Rahul can be made the captain of India.

Gavaskar had said – Jadeja ready to replace Dhoni
Before Jadeja was made the new captain of Chennai, Sunil Gavaskar had said that he is ready to replace Dhoni. If Dhoni wants to take a break for one or two matches in IPL 2022, then Jadeja can take charge of the team very well. A few hours later, Chennai Super Kings made Jadeja the new captain of the team.
Gavaskar had said, “The way Jadeja has matured over the years as a player, as far as his game is concerned, the way he changes his game according to the situation and understands the match, it is fantastic. I wouldn’t be surprised if Dhoni decides to take a rest in any match and Jadeja is made the captain of the team.
What was Shastri’s statement?
Ravi Shastri had said that India will get new captains from IPL. He had said, “Virat is no longer the captain, but Rohit’s performance has been excellent. Especially in ODIs and T20s. Now India will see who will be the captain of the future. Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and KL Rahul are involved in this race. The Indian team will be looking for a strong captain and all these players will have a chance in this IPL.”
