Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings will be looking to erase the nightmare from IPL 2020 and start the new season on a clean slate. With this in mind, CSK hit the field on Wednesday in preparation for the new season.

 

While captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was not visible at training, his former India teammate and another CSK veteran, Suresh Raina, who had not played in the IPL last season, returned to training in a slightly leaner avatar.

The other known faces in training were paceman Deepak Chahar and youngsters Ruturaj Gaekwad and Tom Curran.

While Chahar worked on clocking a good pace, the others were involved in some fielding drills that went on late into the evening.

CSK will have to work doubly hard to revive their fortunes and regain their midas touch this year if they have to get anywhere near the trophy!
