    MS Dhoni has dropped subtle hints that IPL 2024 can be his last season. Thala is back with long hair, and he was also spotted practicing with Prime Sports logo on his bat, which is the shop of his close friend, who helped him a lot during his struggle period.

    Dhoni is the captain of the Chennai Super Kings team in IPL 2024. BCCI has stated that the mega auction will return in 2025, meaning that Dhoni will have to make a big decision soon. In case he retires this season, here’s a list of four players whom CSK can target as captain.

    1. Rohit Sharma can succeed MS Dhoni as captain of CSK

    Rohit Sharma was unceremoniously sacked as the Mumbai Indians captain ahead of IPL 2024. Hardik Pandya has replaced him even though Sharma is the Indian captain. If Sharma asks for his release from MI, CSK can welcome him and appoint him as captain.

    2. Rishabh Pant can succeed MS Dhoni as captain of CSK

    There have been rumors claiming that CSK will trade in Rishabh Pant after IPL 2024 ends. He will then take over the team’s reins from Dhoni. Since both wicketkeepers hang out a lot together, one cannot completely deny the rumors.

    3. Hardik Pandya

    Hardik Pandya is a close friend of Dhoni in real life. Pandya’s move to Mumbai Indians showed that he is an emotional person, and if perhaps Dhoni asks him to take over CSK’s captaincy, he may not think much and accept the yellow jersey next year.

    4. Kane Williamson

    CSK have never had an overseas captain in their history. Kane Williamson can be the man who can lead CSK if needed. Williamson is very underrated as a leader. Dhoni has played a lot of cricket against him and can recommend his name because he might not be an expensive player.
