Watch: MS Dhoni in full swing, smashes gigantic one-handed six during practice
The fifteenth edition of the Indian T20 League is all set to commence in a few weeks from now. Thus, the hype and frenzy around it well and truly justified. With the mega event nearing, teams have already started preparing in order to play the upcoming edition.
Chennai were one of the first teams to start their pre-season training camps. The defending champions began their training in Surat, and their players were recently seen sweating it out. The team recently reached the city, and the pictures of them entering Surat went viral as well.
However, it is MS Dhoni’s shot that has currently grabbed the headlines, and was trending on several social media handles. Despite being 40, the “Thala” still has the muscle power within him. He was recently seen hitting a humongous six in the nets.
Chennai’s social media handle released a video which consisted of several clips of how things unfolded after the team reached Surat. Among all of them, one happened to be the one where Dhoni hits a one-handed six. That shot reminded the fans of Rishabh Pant. It is to be noted that the Delhi keeper-batter constantly hits a six with one hand and thus, it has become his trademark shot.

However, seeing Dhoni hit a six with just one hand increased the excitement level of all his fans. As far as the video goes, it also consisted of a clip where the Chennai captain can be seen speaking to the bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji. Thus, watching the Indian legend look so good in the nets means that he seems to be in good nick ahead of the upcoming edition.
The first game of the 2022 edition shall see Chennai take on Kolkata. The finalists of the 2021 edition would want to have a good start to their campaigns and thus, win this game. It will be exciting to see if the four-time champions can win their fifth.
