Ahead of the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (or MS Dhoni) enjoyed a bit of spray painting on a sunny morning in Chennai. Dhoni, along with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) manager Russell Radhakrishnan, took a stroll around one of the stands at the MA Chidambaram Stadium - the iconic venue in Chennai which is set to host the games for the first time since 2019.
During this time, the legendary cricketer was out with yellow and blue spray paint cans and painted a couple of chairs at the stadium. Taking to Twitter, the official page of CSK shared a video of Dhoni involved in the job and amused by the effectiveness of the paint on the chairs.
"'Definitely looking Yellove' Anbuden Awaiting for April 3," CSK wrote in the caption of the post.
