The Indian Premier League 2018 will see the return of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals after them serving a two-year ban. CSK is one of the most successful teams in IPL history and has a big fan base across the nation. With their return, fans awaited for a new ‘whistle podu’ anthem. CSK has retained MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina. They then picked Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plessis in the auction using right to match cards.

Dhoni would again be seen in yellow, leading the side. In last two seasons Dhoni played for Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS). He did not lead them in the 2017 season. Here is a video of ad shoot of the whistle podu ad where Dhoni is seen celebrating with teammates.

This IPL has also showcased some shocking purchases. Ravichandran Ashwin was not retained nor purchased by CSK. He will now lead Kings XI Punjab this season. Harbhajan Singh who has been a regular member of Mumbai Indians since the very first season will now play for CSK. In the anthem shoot for CKS we can see Harbhajan adding his flavour in the yellow jersey.

The IPL will start on April 7 with CSK taking on Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium.
