It is important to mention that Dhoni had handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja before the start of IPL 2022 season. But the team did not do well under the new captain as CSK lost six out of their eight matches.
Jadeja handed overs the captaincy reins back to Dhoni, who took over the captaincy duties for the remainder of the season in the greater interest of the team.
But, more importantly, this confirmation from the franchise CEO also means Dhoni will be playing in IPL 2023. At the end of all IPL seasons, his availability for the next IPL is always under a cloud. He normally hints at returning back, but does not confirm if it is in the form of a player or a member of the coaching staff or likewise.
