IPL 2021: CSK’s new signing Harishankar Reddy stuns MS Dhoni, gets him bowled out; Watch-The upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League is set to kick off in just three weeks. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are training hard to ensure they give their best on-field. MS Dhoni, in particular, has doubled his preparation in his reportedly last season with the Chennai-based franchise. As he continues to practice with the yellow army, a new signing took him by surprise. In a practice session, CSK’s 22-year-old Harishankar Reddy stunned MS Dhoni with a beauty. He uprooted the leg stumps by speeding delivery that took the CSK skipper by surprise.
Take a look:

The right-arm pacer Harishankar Reddy was bought for Rs 20 lakh by the CSL in IPL 2021 auction last month. He represents Andhra in the domestic competition.
In the auctions, CSK also bought a couple of big names– K Gowtham (Rs 9.5 crore), Moeen Ali (Rs 7 crore)– and Cheteshwar Pujara (Rs 50 lakh).
Last year, CSK failed to qualify in the playoff stages of the tournament. They would like to win the trophy this time around by pulling up their socks with a better batting performance.
The tournament opener will be played between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Chennai. Three-time champions CSK will face off against Delhi Capitals (DC) in their opening match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on April 10. No teams will get home advantage this season.
