Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni missed last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad due to a back spasm as Suresh Raina led the side in his absence. However, MSD set to make a comeback in his side's upcoming clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday as he was seen smacking the ball in the nets at the Chinnaswamy Stadium ahead of the much-anticipated encounter.
While it remains unclear whether Dhoni will feature in the game against RCB or not, his batting in the nets is a positive sign for the defending champions looking ahead. Dhoni has been in fine form with the willow for CSK this season and has played an instrumental role in his team's success as they stand on top of the points table with 14 points from nine games. CSK have lost only two games this season and their latest loss came against Sunrisers in Dhoni's absence.

The bowlers eventually failed to defend the target as SRH rode on half-centuries from David Warner and Kane Williamson to win the game by 6 wickets. CSK will be looking to bounce back and return to winning ways on Sunday as they look to secure playoffs spot.
