Dhoni has been the captain of CSK since the first edition of the IPL, leading the franchise to title triumph on 3 occasions. The side finished runners-up in the previous edition of the tournament, after being beaten by one run in the final by MI.
CSK will be missing out on the services of batsman Suresh Raina and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh for the upcoming season. Both the players have opted out of the tournament due to personal reasons.
