With fresh auctions scheduled next year, it is to be seen whether Rising Pune Supergiant and Gujarat Lions will continue to feature in the IPL.
The two Indian Premier League franchises that have missed the past two seasons of the lucrative T20 tournament through suspension after a 2013 spot-fixing scandal, have been welcomed back by India’s cricket administrators.
CSK have been one of the most consistent teams in IPL history, winning the competition in 2010 and 2011 and ending up runners-up in 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2015.
CK Khanna, acting BCCI president has said, “VIVO IPL will be enriched by the return of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals“.
So, the die-hard fans of Chennai Super Kings looking on the same popularity as before.
It will be very interesting to see CSK compete with 2-time victor Mumbai Indians which is considered as a strong rival for the team. Unfortunately, the team sitting out for the two seasons and will back again. “#CSKReturns #whistlepodu”. This tweet led to fan rush on the micro-blogging platform with fans asking MS Dhoni, team’s most iconic player and captain over the years to take over the captaincy reigns. We have had support from the sponsors and the fans have been phenomenal in supporting us, K George John, one of the directors of CSKCL said.
“However, we will speak to him as and when we make our plans for the next season”, he concluded. For us, loyalty is very important, that’s been our strength over the years.
“Not just Fleming, we are expecting that other members of the support staff will also join us”, said an official. The video was uploaded on September 2016 by the channel on YouTube. We all need to stay calm to get our answers for about five to six month.
On Friday morning, the CSK on Twitter informed their fans and followers about their return to the cricket field.
