Jadeja was not to be made captain

Dhoni can be seen in this role
Talking about Dhoni’s future, he said that the CSK management is not looking serious about it. If Dhoni is gone, he doesn’t have any players as captain. They have to come up with a clear plan for the next season. The players they need, they have to keep them attached to the team. If Dhoni is seen as a mentor in the coming season, then it will be a very good decision. If he remains associated with the team even as a captain, then the team will benefit from it. He further said that if Dhoni remains associated with the team in the role of mentor and coach, then young players will benefit from it.
