Former Indian captain and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni has reached Chennai ahead of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) mega auction, which is scheduled to take place on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru.
The franchisee shared a pic of Dhoni on Twitter.
“The (Yellow) heart goes smiling (grinning face with smiling eyes), every single time! #ThalaDharisanam #WhistlePodu,” tweeted CSK.
“Yes, he has arrived in Chennai today. He will be here for the auction discussions. He is likely to be present for the auction. But it is Mahi’s call and a call will be made close to the auction,” sources told InsideSport.
Chennai Super Kings have retained four players, including their captain MS Dhoni, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, young Ruturaj Gaikwad and all-rounder Moeen Ali ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. Jadeja was their first-choice retention with the Indian all-rounder taking Rs 16 crore while Dhoni has retained for Rs 12 crore, Moeen for Rs 8 crore and Gaikwad for Rs 6 crore.
Since they have already spent Rs 42 crore on retaining players, CSK will enter the auction with an overall purse of Rs 48 crore.
