Dhoni, who led CSK to two IPL and Champions League (CLT20) titles, was back at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai for the launch of Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) and fans welcomed back their beloved skipper.

"Apart from Team India's blue, I think the yellow is pretty special". The crowd has been fantastic. "Not only as a franchise player but even when we have come with the Indian team, the crowd has given us unconditional love and affection", he concluded.

Dhoni was seen in Chennai Super Kings (CSK) colours as he faced a bowling machine. It will get amplified when CSK return to play their first game here next year. "The long wait is over", said Dhoni, who last played at Chepauk against South Africa in an ODI in 2015.

"We were not here for two years, but our fan following has grown in the last two years". "We were not here for two years, but our fan following has grown in the last two years". Fans have stayed with us and the love and affection was always there. He smashed a few out of the park and enthralled the crowd all through the evening. Not only did he captain the city's IPL team for eight long years, but also owns its football franchise in the Indian Super League. "The support has been fantastic even when we were going through a lean patch in a game and needed some outstanding performance from an individual; the support has always been there".

After his speech, Dhoni went about launching three massive hits in a six-hitting contest easily.

Talking about his hitting technique, Dhoni said that he refrains from the orthodox method of holding the bat lightly but instead holds it firmly and tries to make a good connection with the incoming ball.

Dhoni also mentioned that Chennai has always been a special place for the Indian team and they have enjoyed vast support whenever they have played here: "Not only as a franchise player but even when we have come here with the Indian team, the love and affection have been terrific over the years. I don't get lot of elevation", he added.

Will Dhoni be back in the CSK yellows?
