Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic this year, the 13th edition of the IPL was shifted to the United Arab Emirates. The tournament will begin from September 19, with the final on November 10. It will take place in three cities across UAE – Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
Earlier, the Chennai Super Kings squad assembled at their home base in Chennai on August 14 to take part in the pre-conditioning session ahead of the tournament. A day later, MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina, who play for CSK and reached Chennai together on a chartered plane, announced their international retirements.
The Indian players of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals have also assembled at their base. However, RCB captain Virat Kohli is yet to join the side in Bangalore.
