Chennai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday left the Chennai Super Kings training camp here following the suspension of the 13th edition of IPL till April 15 in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.

Dhoni, who had arrived in Chennai for CSK's preparatory camp early this month, left the base in front of his cheering fans.

"It has become your home, sir!' Keep whistling, as #Thala Dhoni bids a short adieu to #AnbuDen," Chennai Super Kings wrote on its twitter handle along with a short video.

The video showed fans lining up to catch a glimpse of Dhoni as he signed autographs and interacted with the fans.

The 38-year-old Dhoni hasn't played any form of cricket since featuring in India's semifinal loss to New Zealand at the 50-over World Cup in England last year.

There has been a lot of speculation over Dhoni's international future ahead of this year's T20 World Cup in Australia, with some saying it will depend on his performance in the IPL-13.
