The second phase of the IPL is all set to begin in UAE. Chennai Super Kings have started their preparations. The CSK skipper was seen practising in the nets. While most of the Indian cricketers are currently in England for the 5-match Test series against England, Dhoni has already started training for IPL 2021 and was spotted clearing boundary with ease during a session.
A video was shared by CSK on social media. In that video, it was seen that Dhoni was smashing the ball easily to clear the boundary. “Dhoni’s Sixes. Our love for Thala. Out of bounds,” CSK captioned the video.
MS Dhoni is looking in fine form and is certainly match ready. He should certainly look to bat up the order.
After finishing his practice it was seen that Dhoni went to search for the ball with his teammates in the bushes.
Dhoni's Sixes 🤝🏻 Our love for Thala

Chennai Super Kings Looking Strong
The MS Dhoni-led franchise finished second last in the 2020 edition of the IPL which was held in UAE. This time around they have turned the tables and have looked in fine form. The addition of Suresh Raina back into the side has boosted their chances of winning. Before the IPL was stopped due to Covid-19 CSK lost to arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in a close encounter.
CSK have five wins to their name in IPL 2021 and are only two points behind top-ranked Delhi Capitals (DC). Dhoni’s participation in IPL from next year onwards remains uncertain, however, as per CSK management, he will continue to remain a part of CSK for a few more years.
Now, with the tournament’s return, the men in yellow again face Mumbai Indians in what promises to be a match for the ages. This match will take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
