MS Dhoni begins preparations for the IPL 2022 season alongside his teammates


Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a legendary cricketer, and former Indian captain, has begun his preparations for the forthcoming Indian Premier League season (IPL). India's World Cup-winning captain has arrived in Surat to train with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ahead of the new season. Dhoni, one of the greatest captains in cricket history, orchestrated CSK's title success in the 14th season of the IPL, domestic cricket's largest spectacular. CSK defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (IPL) in the IPL 2021 final, lifting the prestigious trophy for the 4th time in Dubai, under Dhoni's guidance.

On Sunday, the Chennai Super Kings' official social media account tweeted an unseen photo of skipper MS Dhoni. The iconic captain of the Super Kings, known as Thala Dhoni, was all smiles as the Ranchi legend arrived at the CSK club ahead of the new series.

CSK's most recent post about Thala Dhoni quickly went viral on social media. The current winners of the world's richest T20 tournament have retained the top scorer batter of the Chennai Super Kings club for the 15th season. Chennai Super Kings, the four-time champions, will play the tournament opener at Mumbai's legendary Wankhede Stadium. According to the latest reports, Dhoni and his teammates are preparing for their title defence season in Surat. CSK, led by Dhoni, kicked off their pre-IPL 2022 camp on Wednesday at Surat's Lalbhai Contractor Stadium (March 2).

On March 26, CSK will play KKR, last season's runners-up, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in the IPL 2022 opener. Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kane Williamson's Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Punjab Kings (PBKS), and Gujarat Titans are all in Group B. In the group stage of this high-profile event, the CSK will clash with RCB, SRH, PBKS, and Gujarat Titans twice. At the IPL mega auction, the CSK re-signed Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Robin Uthappa, and KM Asif.
