You might see the future in him as far as the leadership is concern: Irfan Pathan
While speaking to Star Sports, Irfan Pathan concluded that MS Dhoni, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja that CSK might retain for IPL 2022.
"Mahendra Singh Dhoni yes, Ravindra Jadeja yes, Ruturaj Gaikwad absolutely yes. You might see the future in him as far as the leadership is concern, what he has shown consistency, that has been outstanding.
But the fourth one? Sometime back I was thinking about Faf du Plessis, he is 37-year-old. You don’t wanna let go of an all-rounder, either it’s Sam Curran or Moeen Ali. I would go with Moeen Ali for the fourth spot," Irfan Pathan said.
As the mega auction is not far away, all the franchises would be looking on some young and talented cricketers ahead of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. So, we can expect some young cricketers to take part in the cash-rich contest which is going to commence next year.
