Major Trouble For CSK Captain MS Dhoni Ahead Of IPL 2020
Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not played top-level cricket since India’s semi-final defeat to New Zealand in 2019 World Cup.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) not only marks the return of Indian cricket after the Coronavirus pandemic but also presents a chance for fans to see Mahendra Singh Dhoni back in action. The former Indian captain has not played top-level international cricket since India’s semi-final defeat to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup. However, with the IPL all set to begin on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni was back out training for the first time since the lockdown at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) International Stadium Complex last week.
MS Dhoni was training at the stadium’s indoor training facility and used bowling machines to practice in the absence of net bowlers. “He visited the JSCA International Stadium Complex last week. He practised at the indoor facility using a bowling machine,” said a JSCA office-bearer. “He did batting practice for two days over the weekend but he has not returned since,” he added. However, no one at JSCA is aware of MS Dhoni’s training schedule. The official said, “I honestly don’t know what are his plans or whether he will come back for training. We only know he has visited the facility for practice.”
