India’s most beloved cricketing captain is all set to take the field for IPL 2021 as CSK take on DC in their opening encounter. MSD returned to the field after exactly 158 days and Twitterati can’t seem to gather a hold of themselves. With a horrendous 2020 season, CSK have everything up for grabs in the 14th edition under, what could be MS Dhoni’s last edition.
Despite the fact that Dhoni stays away from social media, his return was keenly awaited by his fan base all over the globe. Having more than 8 million followers on Twitter itself and 31 million plus on Instagram, Dhoni’s stardom knows no boundaries.

MSD looks to start the IPL 2021 season with a bang and has gone for a very strong batting lineup, having included 4 all-rounders in their starting 11, CSK have all the motivation to go and conquer their 4th title in 2021.

IPL 2021 also marks the comeback of Suresh Raina to competitive cricket. His absence surely hurt the Chennai Super Kings in the previous edition where he withdrew due to personal reasons and retuned back home from UAE.
CSK’s season opener against DC, will also be the maiden captaincy game for Rishabh Pant, who has led India A and Delhi State Team previously. Pant has replaced Shreyas Iyer who has been rule out for this particular season due to shoulder injury.
