“Two Surprises…”: Faf Du Plessis on Chennai Super Kings’ Mid-Season Captaincy Change and MS Dhoni



Yesterday took place the match between the Chennai Super Kings and the Royals Challengers Bangalore which two teams took it bitterly by losing wickets continuously but as always only one could have been the winner and in this case, it was RCB’s who won the match by 13 runs.

But here we are not going to be discussing or sharing about the match but will be sharing a news about the surprise that Faf du Plessis got from the Chennai Super Kings.

The Chennai Super Kings as a team are known for its decisions and when they decide a combination, they rarely play fiddle with it. But this season was not the case, in the first change that the CSK brought to its team was to allow its mega star captain MS Dhoni to step down and giving chance to Ravindra Jadeja.

Everyone initially appreciated the decision taken and why not when MS Dhoni has plans to retire now. The plan the focus looked all well but after 8 matches of blunder that the team suffered probably was not something the CSK franchise was hoping for. Now after eight matches completed, and MS Dhoni is the captain again. So, you see, desperation is not always mother of invention but failures are.

On last Saturday, according to the CSK’s official statement it was stated;

“Ravindra Jadeja has decided to relinquish captaincy to focus and concentrate more on his game and has requested MS Dhoni to lead CSK. MS Dhoni has accepted to lead CSK in the larger interest and to allow Jadeja to focus on his game.”

Speaking on the event of these sudden changes the former CSK player and the current RCB captain Faf Du Plessis, said that he felt surprised, in fact two times. Faf said,

“I am surprised that the captaincy change happened mid-season, but I was also surprised at the way it happened the way before the season. So, it is like two surprises just almost cancelling each other out,”

He further added,

“Obviously, it is no secret that when MS is there and he is the captain, he does get the best out of the players, and that has been a big part of CSK’s success,”

In the last match against the RCBs, the CSK team lost the match by 13 runs and stood in the 9th place whereas with the win the RCB team are sitting on fourth place waiting to be part of the playoffs.
