CSK, three-time IPL champions, came runner-up in 2019 after losing to Mumbai Indians by one run in the final.

Earlier, bowling coach L Balaji had said CSK's senior cricketers wouldn't have issues getting back to the groove despite the long break.

"Dhoni is always a process backing leader. There is no short cut in his leadership, but he is someone who believes in opportunity and exposure rather than cutting and chopping," Balaji said.
