Dhoni will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season. He was appointed CSK's captain ahead of the inaugural edition of the IPL way back in 2008.

He is the IPL's second-most successful captain having led CSK to four titles, just one behind Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians

With Dhoni in charge, CSK became the most successful IPL franchise of all time, failing to qualify for the playoffs only one in the tournament's 15-year-old history.

Jadeja's performance in IPL 2008 helped Rajasthan Royals to title victory and earned him the nickname "Rockstar" by his captain Shane Warne.

In 2012 IPL player auction, Jadeja was bought by Chennai Super Kings for approx. Rs. 9.8 Crore, making him the most expensive player of the year's auction

Ravindra Jadeja will become only the third player to captain Chennai Super kings after Dhoni and Suresh Raina.
