After two-year hiatus, IPL’s Chennai Super Kings back on cricket field
Indian Premier League side Chennai Super Kings, after serving a two-year suspension, returned to the cricket field on Monday (March 26) as the team held a practice session in southern Chennai city.
In July 2015, two leading IPL cricket teams, Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings were suspended for two years by the Indian cricket board for their role in an illegal betting scandal that erupted in 2013.
Former Indian cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead the Super Kings team and was seen mentoring the players during the practice session. Former International Cricket Council President, N Srinivasan was also present at the Chepauk stadium.
The team will face Mumbai Indians on the opening day of IPL on April 7 in Mumbai. Chennai Super Kings had established itself as a dominant team under Dhoni, winning the league twice in 2010 and 2011.
