13th edition of Indian Premier League is all set to begin from September 19 and all the teams have been gearing up to give their best. While the franchises have been sharing pictures and videos of their practice sessions, one of the most successful franchises – Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is no different.
Recently, CSK was doing an Instagram live session where fans were eager to see their favourite star – MS Dhoni. Not only fans but his wife Sakshi has also requested CSK team manager Russell Radhakrishnan to show a glimpse of Dhoni. Notably, Russell has the responsibility for the live session.
“I wanna see Mahi?” Sakshi’s first comment read.
However, her request was fulfilled as Russell moved the camera towards Dhoni and Sakshi responded quickly with a ‘thank you’ and ‘spotted him’ comment as well. Check it out in the clip below-
MS Dhoni last played a game in July 2019 against New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final where India lost. After more than a year, he will return to cricket when CSK will play against the defending champions Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 campaign opener on Septemeber 19 in Abu Dhabi.
However, the pressure will be on the captain MS Dhoni as CSK wouldn’t get the service of their key players – Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh. They have been pulled out their names due to personal reasons.
Meanwhile, former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar has said that Chennai Super Kings might not have any issues in batting or bowling department in the IPL 2020 edition but they could face an issue in fielding as well.
“The most challenging aspect will be considering the T20 format is based on athleticism”: Sanjay Bangar
“MSD as a captain, I know has a lot of experience, he has other experienced players as well, but how will he adjust these experienced players on field is what I am eager to watch. I do not think there will be any challenges he will face during batting or bowling with respect to these experienced players,” Bangar said on the Cricket Connected Show on Star Sports.
“The most challenging aspect will be considering the T20 format is based on athleticism and fielding plays a vital role in this format, how will he manage his senior players placing them on the field. I think this will be the most challenging part as a captain for him,” he further added.
