Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni has begun his training session ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. Dhoni, who remains an active cricketer only in the T20 league, had some fitness concerns towards the end of the last season but has worked hard to regain full fitness and best prepare himself for the new campaign with the Super Kings. Dhoni has been creating a buzz on social media, having attended a few social gatherings since the start of the new year. But, it was the first time this year that he was seen training.

There remain about three months for the IPL to start, and it doesn’t look like Dhoni is in the mood to mess around. His form with the bat will be key in what will most likely be his last season in the T20 league as a player.

The Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL 5 times in history and they would be keen to do the same in Dhoni’s farewell campaign.
