MS Dhoni rolls back years with iconic ‘helicopter shot’ in CSK's training, tones down fitness concerns

The historic helicopter shot that legendary Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni made during the training session in front of the IPL 2024 first match at Chepauk Stadium versus Royal Challengers Bangalore transported fans back in time. Batting coach Michael Hussey kept a tight eye on captain Dhoni as he looked very skilled in the nets and mowed down the CSK bowlers for fun. Dhoni has returned with his long hairstyle.

There are many rumors that this may be Dhoni's final IPL season, and he appears ready to make it special for both himself and his large national fan base.

On social media, a video of Dhoni stomping on the CSK bowlers in the nets has gone viral. In the video, the renowned wicketkeeper batter can be seen executing his famous helicopter shot after batting coach Hussey gave him some advice regarding his batting.

Dhoni used to begin the season batting in the bottom middle order to lighten his workload because of a knee problem. He had surgery and played with an injury the entire season after leading CSK to the joint-most fifth title. However, the fans are expecting him to go up in order so they can enjoy their batting for a longer period of time.

After undergoing knee surgery at Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital last year, the captain of CSK put a lot of effort into getting fit for the lucrative competition.

The CEO of the Chennai Super Kings, Kasi Viswanathan, recently told reporters that his knee problem has completely recovered. He is undergoing his rehabilitation programs and has started training. He'll undoubtedly be prepared to participate when the upcoming Indian Premier League begins.

In the IPL 2024 season opening at Chepauk, CSK will begin their title defence against Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 22.

March 2 marked the beginning of their preparatory camp. Initially, players such as Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Mukesh Choudhary, and Prashant Solanki entered the camp, followed by the other players.

Before the season had started, CSK was dealt a blow with the news that Devon Conway, the opener for New Zealand, would miss at least the first half of the competition due to thumb surgery. During the third Twenty20 International between Australia and New Zealand, Conway was struck on the finger.
