In a series of videos uploaded by CSK on their Instagram and Twitter account, the Dhoni-led team can be seen shooting for a promotional video of their team for the cash-rich league, which commences on April 7.
The IPL 2018 opening match will see defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) take on two-time winners Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Dhoni has been the skipper of CSK for all eight seasons and the team saw its stars turn up for training including Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson and former Mumbai Indian Harbhajan Singh.
However, they will miss the services of another regular R Ashwin, who was not retained by the franchise.
Ashwin was brought by Kings XI Punjab at the IPL auctions in January and was also assigned the responsibility to lead the team in the upcoming edition.
