IPL is just 20 days away and the buzz is already there, especially, with the fans of MS Dhoni as the CSK captain will return to cricket after a long sabbatical.
Dhoni has already reached Chennai and is tirelessly practising ahead of the tournament.
Talking about the practice in the team, CSK bowling coach said that this is the highest he has seen Dhoni practising before the IPL.
“Till last year, he always landed with a few days to go and a week’s practice was enough for him. But this time, it’s a proper pre-season and he is going flat out in practice. And make no mistake, he is super fit,” Balaji told Times of India.
“With Dhoni here, the atmosphere is fantastic. The younger players, who may find it difficult to pick Dhoni’s brain during the IPL, are finding it easier now to interact with him and learn more,” he added.
CSK will play their first match against the defending champions MI at the Wankhede stadium.
