Meanwhile, the CSK on Friday posted a video on its Instagram account which was edited in such a way that made it look like their talisman MSD was bowling to himself in the nets.
The video titled “The Multiverse of Mahi” has rare visuals of MS Dhoni rolling his arms as well as batting in the nets.
Dhoni will be leading the CSK in this year’s IPL with rumours doing the rounds that this might be his last season but there’s no concrete evidence to support this news.
Ahead of the 2023 edition of the IPL Dhoni’s CSK teammate, Deepak Chahar had brushed aside all the speculations.
Eyes will also be on Ben Stokes, who was signed by the CSK in the mini auction last year for an eye-watering 16.25 crore.
