MS Dhoni does not seem to take his net sessions lightly. He once again proved it during CSK's latest practice session where he made his bat do the talking and showed the cricket fans what they are about to witness on March 29 when the three-time winners kickstart their campaign against title-holders Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.
Dhoni meant business when he was all padded up and was seen striking the ball with great force while he was inside the nets. What stood out during his net session was that he hit five straight sixes as his Indian team-mates, who were also a part of Team India's 2011 World Cup triumph Suresh Raina and Piyush Chawla looked on. Even though a couple of shots did not come off from the middle of the bat but, there was enough power in them to clear the distance. The video was also posted on social media. Watch it right here.

Chennai Super Kings will face the defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener which will be played at the Wankhede Stadium on March 29. The two teams had a face off in that edge of the seat thriller grand finale in the last edition where Rohit Sharma & Co. had held their nerves to win their record fourth IPL title.
On a personal note, this season will be a crucial one for the former Indian captain as a good season here can get him back onto the national selectors' radar. With the T20 World Cup fast approaching, MSD will have to be at his best to get into the scheme of things. Not only will Dhoni look to make his bat do the talking but he will also be eager to lead his team to a fourth IPL triumph.
