This time, the feel of Indian Premier League is much different thanks to the outbreak of Coronavirus. IPL 2020 was scheduled to take place in the month of MArch, however, it got postponed due to the spread of Coronavirus. Now, all the cricketers have flown down to Dubai where IPL 2020 is scheduled to take place. While all the members of teams like Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers and others started with their practice sessions, MS Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings suffered a setback as team members tested positive for COVID-19. However, finally, CSK is back on track and kick-started with their first shoot today.
The official Twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings posted pictures of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and other team players dressed in their uniform seated at the venue of the shoot. Must say, the priority of all was to maintain social distancing amidst Coronavirus. The handle shared the photo with the caption, "The first shoot of the season kicks-off in the n...e...w... n...o...r...m...a...l... #WhistlePodu #Yellove." Then a few more pictures followed that saw Dhoni prepping for the shoot.
