Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has said that there is such a good bond of mutual trust between Chennai Super Kings and Mahendra Singh Dhoni that he can remain the captain of the team in 2021 despite a poor performance this year. The three-time champions Chennai failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time in the history of the tournament and finished eight after losing eight of the 12 matches.
Captain of the changed team will be seen – Gambhir
Gambhir told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘I always say that the relationship between the owners and the captain is a big hand in making CSK. He gave complete independence to MS and got all the respect from the owners.’ He said, ‘I will not be surprised if they retain it. He can play as long as he wants. It is possible that he will be seen as the captain next year with the changed Chennai team. ‘
Mahi deserves this honor
Gambhir said, “He deserves such respect from the owners.” He said, “What he did for the team and the respect given to him by the team owners is a wonderful relationship. Every team should treat their captain like that.” He said, ‘MS gave him three IPL titles, two Champions League titles and made him the most successful team after Mumbai Indians.
Relationship is of mutual trust
If CSK keeps MS as the captain then it is their relationship and mutual trust. That is why MS remained loyal to the team. He gave his heart, mind, sweat, nights sleep to the team. ‘
