According to reports, IPL side Chennai Super Kings are all set to start their camp for the upcoming edition of the mega event from March 11. Notably, skipper MS Dhoni will be a part of the camp from the very first day. After a forgettable IPL season last year where they had finished at the seventh spot, the three-time champions would be aiming to give their best this season and regain the lost legacy. Though the schedule of the 2021 edition of the IPL has not been revealed yet, it is more likely to take place between April and May.

MS Dhoni in IPL 2020:
Dhoni, who has played had a record 204 matches in IPL so far, has scored 4632 runs at an average of 40.99. However, the recent edition of the mega event was not as fascinating for the legendary cricketer as he could score just 200 runs across the 14 games he played.
