“Lion Day Entry,” CSK posted with a photo of Dhoni on its twitter handle about the captain reaching the city.

There will be no camp in Chennai before the CSK players fly out to the UAE, Viswanathan said.

The second half of the IPL 2021 will be held in UAE from September 19 after the tournament was postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in its bubble.


The BCCI then decided to conduct the remaining matches in the UAE, which successfully hosted IPL 2020.
