The Chennai Super Kings will take on the Gujarat Titans in the season opener of the league at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni joined the franchise earlier this week, to prepare for the much-awaited tournament.
The wicket-keeper batter kicked off training with the franchise in their pre-season camp. He hit the ground running and was also seen slamming towering sixes during the session. In a video shared by a fan on social media, MS Dhoni was seen stepping down and smashing a huge six. The clip has gone viral, with fans waiting to see their idol back on the field.
