In the upcoming IPL 2025, there’s a buzz about the possibility of Rishabh Pant donning the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) jersey, as predicted by former cricketer Deep Dasgupta. This speculation stems from the imminent retirement of MS Dhoni after IPL 2024, marking the end of an era for the legendary cricketer who has been associated with the IPL since its inception.

Rishabh Pant, who faced a life-threatening accident in 2022, is on the path to recovery and is expected to make a comeback in the upcoming IPL 2024. Despite being an integral part of the Delhi franchise since his signing in 2016, reports suggest that Pant might make a transition to CSK in the future. Dasgupta, shedding light on the camaraderie between Pant and Dhoni, hinted at the possibility of this move, emphasizing their similar mindset and shared passion for winning.

“Don’t be surprised if they get Rishabh Pant by IPL 2025. MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant are very close. Obviously, Rishabh adores MS, and MS also likes him very much. They spend a lot of time together. Their connection and Rishabh’s thinking are very similar, considering he is very attacking and positive. He’s always talking about winning and whatnot,” Dasgupta said during a recent interview.

If this prediction materializes, Rishabh Pant would likely step into a leadership role, possibly taking on the captaincy for CSK. This prospect aligns with Pant’s previous experience leading the Delhi side for two seasons.

The dynamics between Dhoni and Pant, both known for their attacking and positive approach to the game, further fuel the speculation of Pant’s potential shift to CSK in the IPL 2025. The cricketing world eagerly awaits to see how these developments unfold, anticipating the next chapter in Rishabh Pant’s IPL journey.
