MS Dhoni finally returned to training on March 2 as Chennai Super Kings began their practice for the 2020 Indian Premier League season. The 38-year-old has not represented India since the exit from 2019 Cricket World Cup, and could never do so, with selectors seeming to search for a successor now. CSK fans gave him a rousing reception on Monday, meanwhile the club's official Twitter handle posted a video of 'Thala' being greeted by teammate Suresh Raina, which made social media go bonkers!
Dhoni and Raina share a close bond, having shared the dressing room on national team duty too. In the video, Dhoni and Raina greeted each other with a hug, and then Raina kissed him on his neck.
Social media went crazy after the video got posted.
