Chennai Super Kings(CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has landed at Chennai to take part in the team’s training camp which is likely to begin on March 9.
CSK Training Camp for IPL 2021
CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan said that team’s first training camp of the season is likely to get underway from March 9, adding the players who are available would take part in it.
“Yeah…the camp is likely to start from March 9. Whoever is available would take part in the training sessions,” he told PTI. “The players will undergo five-day quarantine before they start training. Also, they will have to return three negative tests…,” he added.
The Indian players in the CSK will be a part of the camp, he said, adding they would be arriving in batches. Even as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is yet to confirm the schedule and venue details for IPL 2021 in the wake of the pandemic, CSK, it seems, wants to get into the groove.

The former India captain arrived here late on Wednesday and will serve a five-day quarantine.
CSK tweeted a picture of Dhoni at the airport and wrote: “Thalai-Vaa! Smile with the Mass(k) on! Super Night! #DenComing #WhistlePodu #Yellove.”
