Chennai Super Kings squad have already started their rigourous net sessions ahead of IPL 2021 , after a dismal IPL 2020 season in which they did not qualify for the 1st tine into the playoffs . The full squad , except for those on national duties in various teams are sweating it out behind closed doors at the MA Chidambaram stadium under lights .
Following the difficult experience at UAE in last IPL due covid attacks to 10 members during their practice camp , this time the CSK management have been very strict on the medical protocols and quarantine rules .
CSK will start their IPL campaign with 1st match against Delhi Capitals on April 10th . At the present moment the players in the training camp are going through rigourous practice sessions . The franchisee had also added two uncapped Srilankan fast bowlers in their squad who are practicing with the team. The skipper had looked in awesome touch as per the video footage shared by Chennai Super kings in their twitter handle .
In the footage ( shared below) Dhoni looked in menacing form as he played all types of bowlers from left arm pace , right arm pace , left arm and right arm spin and looked to be middling all his shots . He was right behind his shots when playing the fast bowlers off the backfoot and was seen stepping out to the spinners regularly sending some of the balls soaring high into the galleries . There was some brutal hitting by MSD at the nets . For a player who has been out of touch from all types of cricket , it’s amazing how well Dhoni is middling all his shots and not showing any rustiness in the nets .
Other IPL teams will have to beware !!
