IPL Mega Auction 2022 is going to be a bigger than the previous one and it is going to be a total new strategy for Chennai Super Kings. According to our analysis, IPL 2022 for CSK is a transition period, winning the IPL 2022 Trophy is not a big factor for the CSK Management.

Dhoni’s Role in CSK for IPL Squad 2022

MS Dhoni to play for CSK In IPL 2022 for sure and Ravindra Jadeja becomes the ‘First Choice Retention’ in the IPL 2022 Squad retained players by CSK Management.

Chennai Super Kings have named all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja as the first-choice player in their retention list as veteran skipper MS Dhoni will play for IPL 2022. Obviously, it was suggested by ‘Thala‘ MS Dhoni.

As you all aware, there were speculations over Dhoni continuing in the IPL amid the retention policy and keeping the player’s age in mind.

Dhoni is the charming luck of the Yellow Army is not going anywhere as speculations had earlier suggested. Dhoni has won four titles with the franchise and is also the longest-serving captain of any team in the history of IPL. 

MS Dhoni named second choice player in CSK’s retention list for IPL 2022. Why? and Why he suggested Ravindra Jadeja as the first-choice player in their retention?

Dhoni’s charisma and sharpness in decision-making make him the most wanted player for any team, irrespective of his age. It seems like the ‘captain cool’ will play only for IPL 2022. He will predict and pick the best squad for IPL 2022 Chennai Super Kings (CSK). It is one of the sample of MSD’s transition plan.

What is Next for Chennai Super Kings?

CSK’s priority over the last few seasons of the IPL has been age and experience. CSK is the only team with full of seniors in IPL 2022. CSK Team used to called as ‘Daddy’s Army’ with love and passion. In 2018, when the team returned to the IPL after a two-year suspension, it surprised many that the management focussed on bringing back together a major portion of their former squad, mostly full of players who were deep into their 30s. 

Chennai Super Kings – Daddy’s Army

I’m not here to develop young players, I’m here to try and win the trophy for the franchise. Dhoni comments about IPL 2018 – 2022. Why because they need to create the trust for the short term. During those season, creating trust among the players and fans as well as carry forward the legacy with good-will is the main goal for the franchise management. That was perfectly done by Dhoni and Co. Now the time has come to focus on the long term plan.

Dhoni, Bravo, Raina, Imran Thahir, Uthappa – They all are the much experienced players with lot of talent. Now it is the time for CSK to go with transition plan in place for next decade in mind atleast from 2022 till 2030. Ultimately, these players are not in the CSK radar for IPL 2022. CSK Team Fans will be missing the core team of CSK.

Chennai Super Kings on Transition for Future Leader

Jadeja could be looked as the potential leader for the franchise after Dhoni retires from the game. Chennai Super Kings is going to make the strategy in long term it seems. Who will be leading the side in the near future after Dhoni? Who is going to take the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Legacy to further period of time. Chennai is one of the most trusted and high value sports team in the cricket world.

Understanding players’ transition from youth to senior professional in cricket environments is most important as a team in long term. Together, these findings indicate the need for young players to navigate between conforming, adapting to and breaking with specific features of the team environment to successfully progress in the youth-to-senior transition to Chennai Super Kings Franchise.

The importance of transitions in CSK Franshise

A transition in Cricket can be defined as the process of recognising and responding in few seasons after losing or regaining possession of the Cricket tournament.

In recent years, teams at the highest level of Cricket have recognised this process as a way of gaining a competitive advantage over their opponents. Chennai Super Kings is one of the talented team against their rivals in Indian Premier League.

Transition is often overlooked in management as most sessions that are delivered tend to look at either developing play with the ball or bat. Every team should have a better transition plan for the long term.

Making the transition from amateur to professional cricket is the ultimate aim of transition and Dhoni can be the mentor to mould this CSK team through this transition plan.

Dhoni will lead CSK transition for Squad 2022

Dhoni will lead CSK transition same as he did with Indian Cricket Team. The 39-year-old Dhoni, who announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, was captain of the Indian team and led their transition from the era with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Anil Kumble to the current one dominated by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

“It’s about making a strong core to ensure the franchise doesn’t suffer. The core group, we have to have a hard look to see who can contribute for the next 10 years”

Thala Dhoni

Dhoni’s task at CSK will be of less pressure than what he must have faced while being the captain of India but that won’t change the veteran wicketkeeper’s approach.

Dhoni will lead the CSK team from behind and make the players to come forward and take the legacy of Chennai Super Kings. CSK is one of the most prominent and trusted fan base across the franchise, and you cannot see this kind of fan base no where in the cricket world.

Jadeja may lead the team with the mentorship of Dhoni and they will make plan accordingly to create the squad with full of youngers who can play for at least next 4 to 5 seasons with Chennai Super Kings franchise. All the current experienced seniors players are not able to play with CSK in the long term including Suresh Raina. So, it is the time, where Dhoni should be make the plan strategy for the franchise along with the management and owners to come up with the long term plan.
