MS Dhoni's training videos with Chennai Super Kings have been doing the rounds on social media. The right-hander was seen hitting the ball as cleanly as he is known for. He also ended up scoring 123 off 91 balls in a CSK team 2020 practise game ahead of IPL 2020.

Fans are now eagerly waiting for him to don the CSK colours in the upcoming IPL 2020. The tournament was earlier scheduled to commence on March 29, but that has now been postponed to April 15 because of the coronavirus pandemic in the last few days.

MS Dhoni had once said that keepers don’t really need a lot of catching. He added that he had seen over-exaggeration from some keepers as they start going on the floor, which is a very frog style of keeping. MS Dhoni also spoke on what a wicket-keeper is supposed to do. He said that you can drop 100 balls, but whenever there is a catch you take it and whenever there is a stumping opportunity, you take it.
