Mumbai: The two-year suspension, in the wake of spot-fixing, is over and the two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are back in the fold as the eleventh edition of the IPL kicks off at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 7.
The likes of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja (via pre-auction retention) and Faf du Plessis and Dwayne Bravod (via Right to Match) are reunited as CSK have managed to retain majority of the core even as the Stephen Fleming-coached side could not get back the likes of R Ashwin and Brendon McCullum.
While Dhoni is no longer captaining the Indian side, he is back at the helm at what he calls his “second home” and the fans of the team will want to them get going and make the IPL return memorable with the third IPL title.
