Chennai goes berserk as Thala Dhoni walks in
It's that time of the year again when the Chepauk would be all yellow—a jam packed stadium which will resonate with thunderous chants of their thala: Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A taste of Dhoni's fandom was seen on March 18 when Chennai Super Kings stepped in for their first full-fledged training session.
And then, there was this catch-me-if-you can episode again.
Need I remind you this?
Meanwhile, Suresh Raina, who had scored 445 runs in 15 matches at an impressive average of 37.08 and powered CSK to their third IPL trophy in 2018, seems to be in red-hot form hitting six sixes in the practice match.
The #SuperPractice that was! A single innings affair where the Batting Lions took on the Bowling Lions amidst a turnout of over 12,000 at the #AnbuDen! And the Lions won by a margin of #Yellove to the power of infinity! #WhistlePodu pic.twitter.com/wi3rQVBlgQ— Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) March 18, 2019
Defending Champions Chennai Super Kings will face Royal Challengers Bangalore for this year's tournament opener on March 23.
