Indian Premier League 2019: Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are gearing up for the IPL season opener between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in a brand new video.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 is set to kickstart from March 23 onwards with two heavyweights – Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore – locking horns in the tournament opener on March 23 in Chennai. The MS Dhoni-led CSK are the defending champions and are looking stronger than ever as they gear up to defend their IPL title. Whereas RCB are still looking to lift their maiden IPL trophy but this time around the Virat Kohli-led side has made some exciting additions to their squad. Ahead of the highly anticipated match between CSK and RCB, IPL released a fantastic trailer for the match featuring Dhoni, Kohli alongside scores of passionate fans.
In the video, the fans are shown extremely excited about the clash between CSK and RCB and the background score also produces chants of ‘Dhoni…Dhoni…Dhoni and Kohli…Kohli…Kohli…” IPL took to social media platform Twitter to post the brilliant trailer of the match as they captioned the video: “Dhoni, We can’t wait for this battle of the greats.
Last season, Chennai Super Kings came back into the IPL after serving a two-year suspension for the alleged involvement in the 2013 betting case. The Dhoni-led side roared back into the cash-rich league in style as they lifted the IPL trophy for the third time since the inaugural edition. CSK have won the coveted trophy in the year 2010, 2011 and 2018.
Whereas, the Kohli-led RCB would be hoping to lift their maiden IPL trophy after losing the finals on three occasions – 2009, 2011 and 2016. RCB are one of the most popular sides in the IPL but have somewhat disappointed their fans despite having the firepower of Kohli and AB de Villiers at their helm.
CSK and RCB will clash on March 23 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, in what promises to be a cracker of a contest between two top sides.
