Later on, Gaikwad disclosed in a conversation that MS Dhoni had indicated transferring the CSK captaincy to him a few years ago.In 2022, I recall Dhoni saying to me, "You probably won't lead next year, but be prepared for the opportunity after that." It was clear that I was prepared for it (captaincy) from that moment on. Earlier this year, Gaikwad had stated that he was not surprised or shocked by the news because it was not unfamiliar to him.Following the game against RR on Sunday, CSK requested their supporters to remain at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. CSK supporters were then given a celebratory lap and signed balls by their beloved cricketers, causing speculation among commentators on whether this could be MS Dhoni's final match at Chepauk.Suresh Raina's epic reply on MS Dhoni's retirement:During the CSK vs RR match, Suresh Raina, who was commentating, was questioned about whether MS Dhoni was playing his final game in Chepauk.
