Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have got their old leader back as Ravindra Jadeja decided to handover the captaincy baton to MS Dhoni after a series of failures in IPL 2022. As soon as the announcement was made by CSK management, the fans were just waiting for the moment to see Dhoni back on the ground as the captain of CSK.
The moment finally came when Chennai Super Kings (CSK) took the field against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. MS Dhoni walked out for the toss in place of Ravindra Jadeja alongside Kane Williamson in Match 46 of IPL 2022. Seeing Dhoni on the ground as the captain for the first time this season, the crowd could not hold itself back from chanting Dhoni's name and started shouting his name as soon as he entered the arena.

Can Dhoni turn CSK's fortune around?
As Dhoni has been handed back the captaincy of CSK, the biggest question in the minds of the team's fans and experts is can Dhoni turn CSK's fortune around? Well, technically that looks impossible at the moment as CSK have already lost six of the eight games played. They sit at the ninth position in the points table with four points. They have six games left so far. Even if they win all of them, they will reach 16 points.
And as there are ten teams now, many are expected to finish with the same number of points as CSK. Also, with the kind of form the defending champions are in, it looks impossible for them to win all six games. So, it looks like even Dhoni can't turn CSK's fortunes around this season.
