IPL 2022 – I Don’t Think Ruturaj Gaikwad At This Stage Would Be Capable Of Taking The Responsibility If MS Dhoni Leaves: Shaun Pollock




Shaun Pollock feels that it’s still too soon for Chennai Super Kings to look at Ruturaj Gaikwad as MS Dhoni’s captaincy replacement. The former South African captain said with the vast majority of the Super Kings’ accomplished players set to leave after IPL 2022, 25-year-old Gaikwad will confront “too enormous a test” driving a youthful group.

The Super Kings were dove into emergency after Ravindra Jadeja, who assumed control over the seat in front of the time, ventured down mid-way through the season. Dhoni took up the gig once more yet at 40, it’s dubious the way that long he can go on.

Ruturaj Gaikwad Not Ready To Take Responsibility Yet: Shaun Pollock

In any case, addressing Cricbuzz, Pollock said the change could have worked in the event that the departure of the side’s most capable players wasn’t unavoidable. Be that as it may, presently, the former South African skipper feels the initial player is too young and the establishment ought to look outside the camp for another pioneer. He said:

“If Dhoni decides he’s not going to be around next year then I am afraid you have to go outside the camp. I don’t think Gaikwad at this stage would be capable of taking the responsibility on his shoulders particularly when there might be an outflux of all that experience.

“If you still have all those experience campaigners around you then you can make it work but you’ll probably have some very new wet-behind-the-ears individuals to captain and I think that would be too big a challenge for him at this stage.”

Ambati Rayudu, 36, as of late declared his retirement and in spite of the fact that he withdrew the assertion soon, he’s probably not going to play any further in the IPL. Additionally, IPL 2022 is probably going to be the last season for champions DJ Bravo and Robin Uthappa also.

If CSK Only Go To Ruturaj Gaikwad, They Have To Give MS Dhoni Another Year: Shaun Pollock

Pollock feels assuming the Super Kings fundamentally believe that the youthful opener should be their next chief, they’ll need to request that Dhoni lead for one more year, encourage the youngster, share his experience, have on-field visits, and put “thoughts into his brain”. Pollock said:

“If you only go to Gaikwad, you have to give Dhoni another year, and [he needs to] really take him under his wing. What I’d want to see is a lot of the decisions that are made on the field are the two of them making it, having a discussion about what should or shouldn’t happen.

In heat of the battle, [Dhoni should] be sounding him out, be putting ideas into his mind so that a year on, he takes it.”

The Super Kings played their previous league match against Gujarat Titans on Sunday and lost by seven wickets. They’ll play their last game against Rajasthan Royals on Friday, May 20 at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.
