Four-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings headline Group B and will take on their fellow group members Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Gujarat Giants two times each. They will also play their Group A counterparts Mumbai Indians twice apart from facing the remaining teams from the group once.
Dhoni, meanwhile, commented on their training camp in Surat and heaped praise on the provided facilities in their lead-up to this year’s IPL season. Chennai will begin their title defence against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a repeat of last year’s final in the opening fixture of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium on March 26.
“Everyone is very excited, this 15-20 days time will give extra time for them to get used to each other. Facilities in Surat are outstanding. Whatever we have required, they have provided. The facility, reception and hospitality have been great,” said Dhoni.
It all started when Hangargekar was asked about his interaction with Dhoni. Before the young star could say anything, Dhoni cracked up the fans with his remark. The 19-year-old Hangargekar, who was bought by Chennai for ₹1.5 crore in the recent mega auction, shared the piece of advice that he got from Dhoni during his first session with the franchise.metasports
“On the first day of practice, MS bhaiya told me just go with what you are already doing. Don’t change anything. Just keep doing what you have been doing really well. That was a really good piece of advice for me, that I have the freedom to do what I’m doing,” Hangargekar said.
