Amid MI Captaincy Row, the big claim of England Great says, Rohit Sharma to CSK next year, Ruturaj Gaikwad 'Just Holding' Position

Former captain of England cricket team Michael Vaughan feels Mumbai Indians batter Rohit Sharma might end up joining Chennai Super Kings ahead of the next season of the Indian Premier League. There has been a lot of chatter surrounding the future of Rohit as MI after the franchise removed him as captain, with Hardik Pandya taking charge of the team. Fans have not been happy with the franchise for replacing Rohit with Hardik, who has been booed everywhere he has played so far this season, including the home fans.
While there have been rumors that Rohit might be released by MI ahead of the mega auction for IPL 2025, Vaughan feels CSK could be the likely destination for Rohit.
Vaughan said, "Will Rohit Sharma go to Chennai? Replace Dhoni? Gaikwad is doing it (the captaincy) this year, and it might be just an act of holding a position for Rohit next year. I see him in Chennai.”
