The tournament will resume with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on CSK in Dubai. "Huddle Hustle," CSK captioned a team picture on Twitter.
CSK also posted a picture of their captain MS Dhoni in his training gear. "Yellove at first sight," the photo was captioned.

CSK players had gathered in Chennai for a training camp earlier this month. Star players including Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar and Robin Uthappa along with other members of the team arrived in Dubaion August 13.
CSK were second on the IPL 2021 points table with 10 points before the league was halted due to Covid.
The Chennai-based franchise had won five games out of seven and were behind Delhi Capitals, who had 12 points from eight matches.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians were at third and fourth position before the tournament was postponed.
CSK will be hoping to make the playoffs in this year's IPL after registering one of their worst outings in the domestic T20 league last year.
CSK had finished seventh on the points table last year, failing to qualify for the knockout stages for the first time in their history.
