It is the IPL time of the year again. While there are many reasons to wait for the summer, for cricket-crazy fans in India- the start of the Indian Premier League tops that list. Moreover, the IPL time also means that the world will get to see MS Dhoni in the middle of cricketing action. Although the legendary Indian cricketer has hung up his cricketing boots in the international arena, he is still the captain of the Chennai Super Kings.
Not only is he the leader but in IPL 2021, Thala Dhoni showed why he is still among the best in business. He led his team to their fourth title and while he may not be at his best form with the bat when the team was stuck in a difficult situation in Qualifier 1, his heroics with the bat steered them through to the finals.
Ahead of IPL 2022, Dhoni is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that he is in good nick with the bat once the actual T20 competition starts. The Super Kings have already started practicing in Surat and MSD does like his vintage best. In a latest video shared by the franchise, Dhoni can be seen hitting a monstrous six straight down the ground at the Lalbhai Contractor Stadium training facility in Gujarat.
The video was captioned: “SH💥T MAcHI! One for the fam back home! 💛 #WhistlePodu #Yellove 🦁”
Here is the video:
The Super Kings will begin their IPL 2022 proceedings in the curtain-raiser to the tournament on March 26 against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The match is a much-anticipated fixture as it happens to be a repeat of the last edition’s final.
