Defending champions Chennai Super Kings seem to be in no mood to compromise their legacy as they have already started preparations for the upcoming season in a full-fledged manner. The craze surrounding CSK has been really high ever since the arrival of their superstars as more than 12,000 fans gathered at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai during an intra-squad practice match at the venue on Monday.
Skipper MS Dhoni did not take part in the game but was greeted with a thunderous reception by the home fans as he made his way to the nets after the practice match. The veteran wicketkeeper batsman could be seen smashing the bowlers brutally in the nets at Chepauk. In one of the instances during the net session, the 37 year old smashed a humongous six straight down the ground which landed right onto the roof of the stadium at Chepauk.
