MS Dhoni returned to the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) nets in style, as seen in a video posted by Star Sports on Friday. Ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 season, the CSK skipper was seen swinging his arms in style at the Chepauk Stadium.

The 38-year-old was seen smashing five consecutive sixes at the nets.

Dhoni returned to training in Chennai from March 2 along with other CSK players ahead of thirteenth season of the IPL. He has remained out of action since India’s exit at the 2019 ODI World Cup, where he, alongside Ravindra Jadeja, took India to within a fighting chance of winning the semifinal against New Zealand.

With several wicketkeepers having staked their claim to India’s limited overs side since then, a lot of attention will be on Dhoni’s season for CSK this year.
