The thirteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to begin from March 29 as the teams get ready to gear up for the world’s biggest T20 extravaganza.
With the tournament just a few days away, the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) finally have their widely loved skipper MS Dhoni back for training.
The IPL 2020 opener will be played between the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and CSK at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Ahead of the start of the cash-rich tournament, the Chennai-based franchise released a video on social media of Dhoni arriving at his den with the CSK team manager Russell Radhakrishnan.
As expected, the former Indian skipper received a grand welcome from a massive crowd as numerous fans flocked to get a glips of their beloved ‘Thala’.
“Every goose shall bump with First Day First Show feels! Just #StartTheWhistles! #HomeSweetDen,” CSK’s tweet read.

Ever since Team India’s semi-final exit from the 2019 ODI World Cup against New Zealand in July, MSD made himself unavailable for selection.
Under MSD’s leadership, the Super Kings have won three IPL titles (2010,2011, 2018) and will be looking to equal Mumbai’s record of four this season.
