MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina have been with the CSK since the inception of the Indian Premier League in 2008. Raina and Dhoni have been the lynchpins of the Super Kings squad. They also enjoyed a brief stint in the national team together where they managed many match-winning partnerships. The former Indian captain has been out of action since the World Cup in England and fans are eager to see Dhoni return to the field during IPL 2020. Raina, on the other hand, is one of IPL’s leading run-getters and would look to get some runs under his belt in IPL 2020. CSK kick-start their IPL 2020 campaign with a clash against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians. They won the IPL title last season by beating the Super Kings.
