Chennai Super Kings (CSK) – Suresh Raina
CSK has been one of the most successful teams in the history of IPL. They have won three titles and all came under the leadership of MS Dhoni. The veteran has seldom missed a game for the franchise.
However the veteran might miss a few in the upcoming season. This is because he has some back issues and was recently struggling with it. Moreover he have to keep in mind about the upcoming World Cup.
In that scenario, Suresh Raina might become CSK’s new captain. The left-hander batsman from Uttar Pradesh is the league’s highest run-getter. He has also captained CSK when Dhoni was injured in 2010.
Moreover he captained Gujarat Lions for a couple years when CSK was banned. Hence if Dhoni decides to manage his workload, Raina can be the best replacement in terms of captaining the franchise.
