MS Dhoni, the former captain of Indian squad, is gearing up for leading Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2018 and the level of excitement is quite high as CSK is returning after a 2-yr ban.
As less than a month is remaining in the beginning of IPL, the anthem of IPL 11 was launched on Monday evening and Dhoni also shared it from his official Twitter handle.
The anthem is inspired from a song “Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawano ka” from the movie “Naya Daur” (1957).
Dhoni shared the anthem on Twitter with caption, “Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia”

CSK has retained Mahi, Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina while Faf du Plessis and Dwayne Bravo have been recalled and some new players have been inducted in the team, such as Imran Tahir and Shane Watson.
The Managing Director of Star India Sanjay Gupta said,
“The very essence of IPL is a thrilling, action-packed celebration of cricket where the best of talent take on each other in one of the most gruelling cricket tournaments in the world. It is a fantastic celebration of both the game and its millions of fans across the world.”
He further added,
“The Best vs Best campaign endeavours to showcase the pinnacle of cricket that this tournament is associated with.”
Mahi is not a part of Indian squad which is playing tri-series in Sri Lanka as he has been rested but we are sure that he must be using this chance to regain his energy for the cricket extravaganza, starting April 7, 2018.
Fans are super excited for CSK’s comeback in IPL after 2 long years and can’t wait to see Dhoni as a captain. Check out some selected tweets:
