This is the reason why Chennai Super Kings will have to find a new captain as soon as possible. Regarding which Virender Sehwag has given his response. The former Indian opener believes that Ruturaj Gaikwad has the potential to become the team’s next captain. Talking on Cricbuzz, Sehwag said, ‘He captains Maharashtra. He plays very quietly. It seems that whether he has scored a century, or is out for zero, his reaction is the same. It doesn’t show on his face whether he is happy to score a century or is sad to be dismissed for a duck.
Have all the qualities to be a captain
Virender Sehwag says that Rituraj has all the qualities to become a captain. He further said, ‘He has all the qualities required to be a good captain. He captains in first-class cricket, so he knows how to control the match. Who should be given the ball, what changes need to be made in the batting order… He has an idea.
Orange Cap was won last season
Ruturaj Gaikwad won the Orange Cap in IPL 2021. There is definitely a lack of consistency in his batting this year, yet he is still the highest run-scorer for Chennai. Sehwag said, “Anyone can have a good season, but if he plays 3-4 seasons well, he can be the captain for a long time after Mahendra Singh Dhoni.”
