Chennai Super Kings squad on Friday reached Chennai ahead of their five-day training camp between August 15-20 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. 

Skipper MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Karn Sharma and Piyush Chawla were seen landing in Chennai but Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja haven’t arrived yet. They are expected to join the side in the later date. 

CSK management has already taken the required permit from the Tamil Nadu government for conducting the pre-season camp before flying to the UAE on August 21. 

Some domestic Chennai players are also expected to join the training camp over the next week at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Harbhajan Singh and Shardul Thakur will also join in the coming days as they did not travel due to personal reasons. 

Yesterday, MS Dhoni underwent coronavirus test and also tested negative as he got the clearance to join the squad. He was in his residence in Ranchi ever since the coronavirus pandemic struck. 

Bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji will be the only coaching staff to be present in the training camp. The others will be joining the team on August 22 in Dubai. 

While the foreign players including Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi are expected to join the side by the starting of September.
