The Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has kicked off his preparations for the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League at the Lalbhai Contractor Stadium in Surat. CSK have regular posted Dhoni’s videos on social media, and the latest one is of a pull shot.
Dhoni’s video, which was uploaded by CSK on Twitter, has gone viral on the microblogging platform. It has received more than 190,000 views already. Fans should note that CSK just posted a video of Dhoni’s practice and not from an IPL match.
The fan following of Dhoni has reached at the next level in the last few years. It is unlikely that IPL 2022 will be Dhoni’s last appearance for CSK because the captain of the team has stated that he hopes to end his T20 career in Chennai. The IPL 2022 matches are expected to happen in Maharashtra only.
The BCCI have officially confirmed that the league stage will take place across four venues in Mumbai and Pune only. At the moment, they have not disclosed the playoffs. But many fans feel it will either be Ahmedabad or Mumbai.
Dhoni’s video on the CSK Twitter account has earned more than 20,000 likes
The Chennai Super Kings posted a brilliant video of captain MS Dhoni hitting a big shot. The bowler bowled a short delivery, and the right-handed batter pulled it to perfection. If Dhoni continues in the same form, the other teams’ bowlers will find it difficult to bowl to him. Here’s how CSK captioned the video:

The Chennai Super Kings will open their IPL 2022 campaign against last season’s runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders in a rematch of last year’s IPL Final match. For the first time in 11 years, CSK and KKR will battle in the opening game. It will be interesting to see who wins the big game this year in Mumbai.
