Today is the last day for teams to hand over the names of the players they will retain to the IPL management as the mega auction for the IPL 2022 series takes place. The CSK team has retained Dhoni, Jadeja, Rudraj, Kejriwal and Moin Ali.
In this situation, former player and BJP MP Gambhir had suggested in a private TV show which 4 players Chennai team should retain. Gambhir said he wanted to retain only four players, youngster Ruthuraj Kejriwal, all-rounder Jadeja, Duplessis and Sam Karan, and could pick the others at auction.
Gambhir did not mention the name of Tony, who will captain the Chennai Super Kings. Although Tony’s form has suffered a bit, he will lead the team and accumulate runs in key matches. Even after the Chennai team management said that they would retain Tony as their first player, Gambhir did not want to be named.
Gambhir did not mention his name because he did not like Dhoni and netizens and head fans have been pouring on Gambhir if he is jealous of Dhoni.
