"He has all the qualities of Dhoni"- Virender Sehwag picks the long-term successor of CSK after MS Dhoni

With the addition of the two new teams, the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League has become more competitive. As a result, two of the IPL's most successful franchises have already been eliminated. On Thursday, in a match between two arch rivals, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, MI ended up on a winning side that kicked the defending champions out of the competition.


CSK has gone through many issues this season and the biggest worry was related to the captaincy. Ravindra Jadeja was named the captain of the side just a couple of days before the first match. But it didn't go as they had thought and CSK started the season horribly. Even so, Jadeja wasn't able to deliver his individual performance. That was the reason he handed the captaincy duties back to MSD midway.


So there is a big question about the captaincy of CSK once Dhoni retires. So there is a lot of talk about who will be the successor of MS Dhoni. However, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has come up with his suggestion as he named one player who would be ideal to lead the team after MSD.


Sehwag has named opener Ruturaj Gaikwad as the one who has the quality of being a good captain. During an interaction with Cricbuzz, the former opener pointed out that the 25-year-old has also captained Maharashtra and has a very calm head.

He said that he doesn't show much emotion whether he scores a century or gets out on zero. That shows how calm he is and how he has control of his emotions.


Speaking further, he said that all these qualities could make him a good option to lead the team because he is currently leading his domestic team and knows how to make decisions. Sehwag added, "If he plays 3-4 more seasons, he will become a captain who can become a long-term captain after MS Dhoni."


The former opener also spoke on the similarity between Gaikwad and Dhoni. He said that MS is also calm and takes his decisions and knows how to use his bowlers and batters, which makes him a great captain, and the luck factor is also on his side.

However, he also spoke about Gaikwad. He said that he also had the same qualities, but one thing which is not their that is luck.
