Former India captain MS Dhoni is back in action as he has started the training with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) at the M A Chidambaram Stadium.
Dhoni who will be leading CSK in the IPL has been out of the Indian team since The Men in Blue’s exit from the World Cup 2019 after they lost to New Zealand in the semis.
The official social media account of CSK posted a video of Dhoni taking guard in the nets that was captioned, “Verified
A grand waltz to take guard! #StartTheWhistles #SuperTraining ????????”
Dhoni was recently also dropped form the list of BCCI’s centrally contracted players.
Ambati Rayudu, Murali Vijay, Piyush Chawla, R Sai Kishore were some of the players who took part in the training session. The CSK will begin their tournament against Mumbai in the opener at Wankhede Stadium on March 29.
Chennai Super Kings have lifted the trophy three times. They even picked some big players in the auctions as well. Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla and Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood made a cut into the side while England’s left-arm medium pacer Sam Curran and young spinner R Sai Kishore.
