Chennai Super King’s official Twitter handle posted a video where Dhoni, Raina and Rayudu can be seen hitting the ball in the nets. “1 Shots! #WhistlePodu #Yellove,” CSK wrote in the caption of the video.
At the start of the video, Suresh Raina changes the bat and Dhoni takes the guard. Dhoni hits a pull shot on a short pitch ball and Raina flicks the ball off his leg. Then the left-hand batter hits two more huge sixes one of his legs while one playing inside out. Ambati Rayudu then joins the duo, starts with a ground shot and then smashes two big sixes.
Earlier today, CSK skipper yet again proved that age is just a number. In CSK’s first training session in Dubai, Dhoni undertook fitness sessions along with other young players. Besides, a plethora of shots- a four-hit through the mid-wicket, lofted hits over the bowler and mid-on were seen coming from Dhoni’s bat.
