As the IPL 2023 season opener comes closer, the buzz among the fans for the biggest T20 franchise league in the world is fast reaching the crescendo. Earlier today, a video surfaced on the official Twitter account of WhistlePodu Army ® - CSK Fan Club, captioned “Oh Captain, My Captain.” It had the legendary cricketer MS Dhoni standing up and stretching his arms on a lat pull-down bar.

With each and every pull-up from the CSK skipper in this rare workout glimpse, the number of fans outside the gym increased. These supporters were chanting “Dhoni Dhoni” and whistling at their beloved cricketer in ecstasy while recording the special moment on their smartphones too.

Recently, on March 16, a tweet from the official Twitter account of Chennai Super Kings captioned “ICYMI the easter egg from last night, here is the original,” had the image of MS Dhoni playing a shot while his big biceps were on show for everyone to see.

One of the most popular discussions among the fans on social media regarding CSK has been about the supreme fitness maintained by MS Dhoni at the age of 41.  With that being said, the fans of Chennai Super Kings are also looking forward to a better performance from their team in comparison to last season where they finished 9th on the points table with only 4 wins in 14 matches.

The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League will kick off at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on March 31st. The opening game will see Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni go head-to-head against the defending champions Gujarat Titans captained by Hardik Pandya.
