Ravindra Jadeja has been appointed as CSK’s new captain after MS Dhoni stepped down from the role.
MS Dhoni shockingly stepped down as the Chennai Super Kings captain on March 24 having led them successfully for 12 seasons. Star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been appointed as his successor. After taking over the reins from Dhoni, Jadeja has exuded confidence to lead the team from the front from this year onwards and also take the legacy of the franchise forward.
Meanwhile, it seems that Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma is not convinced that the southpaw will be a good leader for CSK. While the former Ranji player did hail Ravindra Jadeja the all-rounder, he made it clear that sometimes a good cricketer is not necessarily a good captain adding that the middle-order specialist is an inexperienced candidate as well.
Ravindra Jadeja doesn’t have that much experience: Rajkumar Sharma
“Ravindra Jadeja is no doubt a leading all-rounder in the world. But since he hasn’t captained much and doesn’t have that much experience, then it would be something to look out for. Sometimes a good cricketer isn’t necessarily a good captain and vice versa”, said Rajkumar Sharma while speaking on the YouTube podcast ‘Khelneeti’.
