Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was in great form for India during the tours of Australia and New Zealand and at home against the former when they were visiting, will be eager to replicate his performances in the Indian Premier League that begins on Saturday.

It seems, the CSK captain can't wait to take the field after he was seen smashing sixes for fun during a CSK net session.

On the evidence of CSK practice sessions, the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman, who has guided the Chennai franchise to three IPL titles, has also gotten into groove quickly.

Dhoni's team will host Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore in the opening match of this year's edition on March 23 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Chennai Super Kings, who are the reigning IPL champions, will be keen to start the new campaign on a winning note and go on to successfully defend their title.

The Chennai outfit, which has been captained by Dhoni since its inception in 2008, is currently tied with Mumbai Indians for most titles with three.
