Chennai had a forgettable last season in the Indian T20 League. They finished in the ninth position with just four wins out of 14 matches. However, they also faced issues regarding their captaincy duties. First, Ravindra Jadeja and then, MS Dhoni led the team. But, both failed to deliver in the tournament.

MS Dhoni has been the most successful captain in the history of this franchise. So, he will look to lead the team again in 2023. But, reports are there that this upcoming edition might be the last one for MS Dhoni. Therefore, there are some players who can become the new captain of this franchise. 

Here are the top three players who can become the new captain for the Chennai franchise after Indian T20 League 2023:

This star Indian all-rounder can become the new skipper of the Chennai franchise in the Indian T20 League. Currently, Ravindra Jadeja is getting ready to make a comeback for team India against Australia in the upcoming series at home. However, in the last edition of the tournament, Ravindra Jadeja had the opportunity to lead the team.

He led Chennai in eight matches where the team won only twice. After that, he got injured and missed the tournament. So, the captaincy baton went to MS Dhoni again, and in this upcoming season, he will lead the team again. But, based on his experience, Chennai might go with him again in the next season.
