As the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League draws closer, the heat around the cricket carnival is on the rise. Recently, a video of MS Dhoni went viral when his franchise Chennai Super Kings shared a video of him practising in the nets. The CSK has been absent from the IPL for last two seasons. This season of the IPL will see the return of MS Dhoni into his team again along with CSK itself.
MS Dhoni played as a captain of now-defunct Rising Pune giants. The season is special as MS Dhoni has played for 8 years in a row with CSK and after a long gap of two years, he will again be seen in the yellow jersey.
CSK has clearly been the most consistent team in terms of performance it has put up. It has won the title twice and has never failed in making it to the qualifying round. The team's consistency is something that has been unique and it is for this reason that the team is one of the strongest contestants for the title, this time again.
The players and the team have a big reputation to live up to and the team has started its preparations already. While the team is back training to get into the rhythm before the season begins, they are also enjoying some great time off the field with their commercial duties.
On Friday, CSK released a series of videos and pictures on the socail networking platform, Instagram, in which the players could be seen having fun.
In one of the videos, Dhoni could be seen dancing with his teammates while in another video, Harbhajan Singh can be seen performing Bhangra while sitting in an autorickshaw
The team will play their first match on 7th April against the defending Champions Mumbai Indians. Chennai Super Kings will be a part of the Indian Premier League after a gap of two years as the team served the suspension due to their involvement in 2013 spot-fixing case.
