MS Dhoni was seen joining the camp for IPL 2021 along with his teammates a few days back. Chennai Super Kings who had a forgetful IPL last year are all set to make a strong comeback. Meanwhile, Rajiv Kumar the fielding coach of Chennai Super Kings spoke about MS Dhoni’s first week back in training with the franchise.
How Is Dhoni Shaping Up?
In the first episode of AnbuDen Diaries, Rajiv Kumar informed about Dhoni’s first week at nets with Chennai Super Kings teammates for IPL 2021. The Chennai based side became the first Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise to organize a camp for its players ahead of the IPL 2021 season. Along with the captain MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and others were seen indulging in nets and fielding sessions.
CSK’s fielding coach Rajiv Kumar shared his thoughts on the same. He especially talking about the skipper preparing for the 14th season of Indian Premier League. “You know how smart MS (Dhoni) is. He understands his body, he understands his game. Not too many 40-year-old men assess the ball that clearly, and his determination is great to see,” Rajiv Kumar said.
CSK’s Plan with Dhoni
While the franchise had the worst season last year in the history of IPL, Dhoni himself did not have a decent one. He could only 200 runs at a strike rate of 116.27 and failed to get even one half-century. He was visibly struggling on the field in many games. So, even for Dhoni this IPL is going to be an important given the fact the this could be his last one.
“Every session he is coming with a certain plan, and he is working on it. We are just trying to figure out how to get the east out of him,” said CSK fielding coach. Chennai Super Kings will start their IPL 2021 campaign against the Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 10.
