After Chennai Super Kings (CSK) suspended their pre-tournament camp due to the Coronavirus outbreak, MS Dhoni was seen playing badminton to stay fit. MS Dhoni has been on a sabbatical from the game since India's exit from the World Cup in the previous year and it is said to be that the former skipper will decide on the future course of his career after the IPL.

After the announcement of the pre-tournament sessions getting discarded, a video posted on Twitter showed the keeper-batsman playing Badminton in Ranchi to maintain his fitness level.

One of the most anticipated prospects of IPL 2020 was the comeback of veteran Indian cricketer MS Dhoni. The wicketkeeper-batsman has not featured in any top-flight cricketing contest since semi-final from the 2019 Cricket World Cup. However, due to IPL getting postponed by the BCCI, fans of the esteemed cricketer will now have to wait a few more days to see their favorite star in action.
