In a ‘Behind The Scenes’ (BTS) video posted on social media on Saturday, MS Dhoni, the three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions, was seen laughing with West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and other Chennai Super Kings teammates. CSK stars can be seen having a nice time during a team photoshoot in the 58-second video. MS Dhoni, the captain of Chennai Super Kings, seemed to be in a good mood as he laughed with his teammates.
Last year, the three-time IPL champions finished seventh on the points table, failing to qualify for the play-offs for the first time in the franchise-based tournament’s history.
This season, the Chennai-based franchise has made investments in players such as Moeen Ali and Krishnappa Gowtham in an attempt to turn their fortunes around.
On April 10, Chennai will face last year’s runners-up Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2021 season opener. CSK has arrived in Mumbai and has begun their preparations for the upcoming IPL season.
CSK were dealt a major blow on Thursday when Australia international Josh Hazlewood decided to withdraw from the upcoming season in order to spend more time with his family before a busy international schedule.
“It’s been a long 10 months in bubbles and quarantine at various times, so I’ve decided to take a break from cricket and spend the next two months at home and in Australia. We’re also in for a long winter. The West Indies tour will be lengthy, with a Bangladesh T20 tour possibly thrown in at the end “Hazlewood had said previously.
So far, the Chennai Super Kings have not named a replacement for the fast bowler from Australia.
