Chennai Super Kings (CSK) CEO Kasi Viswanathan has provided an update about franchise skipper MS Dhoni’s fitness and his participation in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Dhoni was seen struggling with his left knee in the previous season. He was finding it difficult to run between the wickets and regularly demoted himself in the batting order. Post the tournament, he underwent knee surgery in a hospital in Mumbai.
Providing the update about Dhoni’s knee, CEO Kasi Viswanathan said that he is doing fine and is likely to begin his net practices in the next two weeks.
“He is doing well now. He has started his rehab and is working in the gym. Probably in another ten days, he will also start working in the nets,” he said at the launch of the Junior Super Kings inter-school tournament.
Vishwanathan also revealed that the Chennai-based franchise is planning to start their camp for IPL 2024 by the first week of March. “With the season set to start around March 22, we are planning for a camp in Chennai by the first week of March,” he added.
CSK formed a solid squad for IPL 2024
CSK enjoyed a good time at the IPL auction this month where they picked some good names at reasonable rates. They picked the likes of Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman and young prodigy Sameer Rizvi.
The Yellow Army retained the core group of the IPL 2023 winning team. Though they will miss the services of Ambati Rayudu, they have reinforced great talents to defend their title in the upcoming season.
