Just ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have turned to motivation as a way to boost some confidence back in time for the new season. The three-time champions held a mini-award session to recognize the performance of a couple of their key players from the previous IPL edition. CSK shared a few photos on their official Instagram account on Thursday, that showed South African legend Faf Du Plessis and English all-rounder Sam Curran taking home the honors for being the team’s highest run-scorer and wicket-taker, respectively.

CSK skipper MS Dhoni and their talisman batsman Suresh Raina presented Du Plessis with a trophy, while the skipper was joined by all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja when they handed the award to Curran. The franchise’s post referred to the duo as “Super Lions”.
