Mahendra Singh Dhoni will begin his training at the M A Chidambaram Stadium with the Chennai Super Kings ahead of his anticipated return in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The Chennai Super Kings captain is expected to start his training along with the likes of Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu among others. Raina and Rayudu have been training here for the past three weeks or so.

“Dhoni will train at the M A Chidambaram stadium from March 2. He will practice with players who are available at that time,” CSK CEO K S Viswanathan told the media.

“The full camp will begin on 19 March when all the players would have joined the squad,” he added.

The 38-year old has not played since the World Cup semifinal loss to New Zealand last year and has maintained a stoic silence on what his next move would be. He was dropped from the BCCI’s list of centrally contracted players in January.

The IPL 2020 begins with CSK taking on defending champions Mumbai Indians in Mumbai on March 29.

Dhoni is also expected to a break before returning, PTI quoted a source as saying.

Dhoni had commenced training with the Jharkhand team some time back.

The Super Kings’ practice sessions in the last two years has attracted thousands of fans and with Dhoni set for an early arrival for preparation, similar numbers can be expected this time around too.

The three-time IPL champions had picked up veteran leggie Piyush Chawla, Australian pacer Josh Hazelwood, England all-rounder Sam Curran and Tamil Nadu left-arm spinner R Sai Kishore during the players’ auction held in December last year.
