After Team India won the recently concluded ODI series against England and finished their international commitments, the focus now turns to the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is scheduled to start on April 9, 2021. While few players, who did not feature in the limited-overs leg of the India vs England series, joined their respective IPL franchises well in advance, other players had undergone quarantine and are joining practice drills to be in tune before the 52-day long T20 extravaganza starts.

Chennai Super Kings’ new signings Robin Uthappa, Cheteshwar Pujara and K Gowtham after serving the mandatory quarantine period began training with the CSK camp in Mumbai. Three-time champions CSK will face last year’s runners-up Delhi Capitals on April 10 and the new recruits shared their excitement of being in the yellow jersey.
