After completing their six days of mandatory quarantine on arrival in UAE, Chennai Super Kings have started training for the second phase of the 14th Indian Premier League (IPL) at the ICC Cricket Academy in Dubai.
Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, hit the ground running at the ICC academy in Dubai as the three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions began their preparations ahead of the resumption of the T20 league on Thursday. The 14th edition of the IPL was postponed midway after several players tested positive for coronavirus inside the bio-bubble. The tournament will resume with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on CSK in Dubai. “Huddle Hustle,” CSK captioned a team picture on Twitter.
Skipper MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar and Robin Uthappa along with other members of the team arrived in Dubai on August 13.
CSK were second on the IPL 2021 points table with 10 points before the league was halted due to Covid.
The Chennai-based franchise had won five games out of seven and was behind Delhi Capitals, who had 12 points from eight matches.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians were in the third and fourth position before the tournament was postponed.
CSK will be hoping to make the playoffs in this year’s IPL after registering one of their worst outings in the domestic T20 league last year.
CSK had finished seventh on the points table last year, failing to qualify for the knockout stages for the first time in their history.
