The Three-time Indian Premier League champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have landed in Mumbai to continue their preparations for the IPL 2021. They had been practicing for the past few days at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, their home ground.
The team will be based in Mumbai for a month, a press release said. CSK will play five matches in Mumbai — starting with the game against Delhi Capitals on April 10 before moving to Delhi, Bengaluru, and Kolkata for the rest of the league fixtures.

“The players felt the fortnight-long camp was very beneficial. We also had four or five days of open nets. After the previous season, Dhoni told us that he’d reach Chennai in March to prepare for the 2021 edition. True to his word, he was here,” CSK chief executive officer KS Viswanathan said.

Viswanathan said they were confident that the team would do well in the forthcoming season.
“We are very confident that the team will do well this season given the kind of replacements that we’ve got and the preparations so far,” he added.
The Super Kings picked six players at the auction in February including off-spin bowling all-rounders Moeen Ali and Krishnappa Gowtham after trading top-order batsman Robin Uthappa from Rajasthan Royals.
