Ranchi: Sep 15, 2013

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is all set to play in his hometown Ranchi for the first time in the shortest version of the game when his team Chennai Super Kings play in the upcoming Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) 2013.

“The fans in Jharkhand can see Dhoni in T20 matches for the first time in Ranchi,” Manoj Kumar, a Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) official, said.

Dhoni, who played an ODI in Ranchi against England earlier this year, did not play T20 as the CSK were not scheduled to play in Ranchi during Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013.

Dhoni will stay in Ranchi till the completion of Championship League matches of the CSK. They are slated to play against Titans on September 22 in their first match.
