Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will play a key role in the IPL this year, coach Stephen Fleming said. It is also reported that Mahendra Singh Dhoni may have a change in the batting position, likely to be in three or four places.
The Chennai team ended the two-year ban and returned to the IPL. The players are already in Chennai and are trained in Chennai. Fellow of the team coach Fleming said, "Dhoni will play a key role in this year's IPL. He is very struggling for this. Practice sessions are trying to hit huge shots. There are definitely changes in his batting position. These changes are in line with team needs. Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Jadeja, Bravo, Harbhajan, Karn Sharma and other players are strong in all disciplines. Let's focus on combinations, "Fleming said.
Defending champion Chennai will play Chennai's first match. The match will be played on April 7 at Wankhede Stadium.
