After days of sweating it out at the Chepauk, team Chennai Super Kings have reached Mumbai for their first game against the champions of the last year, Mumbai Indians. Team Super Kings will play their first game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Dhoni’s men have reached Mumbai for their first game. MS Dhoni who was in Delhi for receiving the Padma Bhushan Award, also has reached Mumbai.
Team Chennai Super Kings shared the pictures of the Yellow Army from the airport. Suresh Raina, was the first one to step out of the airport followed by other team members. Team CSK captioned the snaps, “Here we come, Mumbai! #WhistlePodu💛🦁.”
Yesterday, while addressing the press, Stephen Fleming said would play a 'more prominent' role as a batsman in the upcoming IPL by batting 'relatively high' in the order.
"MS will be relatively high. The time that we choose may depend on the match situation as well. He would definitely play a more prominent role as a batter," Fleming said when asked about Dhoni's probable batting position. "Ahead of him, there are some good picks, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu. Jadeja, Bravo, Harbhajan fits in there as well, Karn Sharma, they can all hit. So again, looking at our sides, there a lot of multi-skilled players. There is a lot of options there," he added. Fleming harped on the team's versatility and said there were a number of multi-skilled players. "One of the key things of the squad is the versatility.. combinations are important.. both Indian and overseas."
With this, we are sure that the fans are hoping to have a great IPL season ahead!
