MS Dhoni battled through a knee injury and had some fitness concerns in the 2023 season. He was also seen spending time with his family and friends in Dubai at the time of the IPL Auction. But the former Team India keeper-batter is working hard to regain his full strength and is preparing himself for the upcoming IPL season. While there is still time for the IPL to begin, MSD is leaving no stone unturned, as the Chennai Super Kings will be defending their championship title this year. A video is spreading throughout social media, in which the CSK captain is seen wearing yellow pads and taking up training in the nets.
The Chennai Super Kings will defend their IPL title this year after they won it for a record fifth time in history. Additionally, this could be MS Dhoni's final campaign, after which he could step down from the one league he is competing.
CSK made some smart calls in the IPL 2024 auction and was able to take up a breakout star in the team. The Kings brought in Rachin Ravindra, Shardul Thakur, Daryl Mitchell, Sameer Rizvi and more to enhance their team, and they will enter the 2024 season as the top contenders for the title.
