CSK seek perfect homecoming at Chepauk stadium

Chennai: Chennai Super Kings will aim to dominate Kolkata Knight Riders in the presence of die-hard fans when they play their first IPL home game in two years here on Tuesday.
Back with a bang with a thrilling win over Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener, Chennai Super Kings will look to improve further.
For the legion of CSK fans, it will be a homecoming like no other as the 'Men in Yellow' will play at M A Chidambaram Stadium for the first time since May 2015. Their loyal supporters also turned up in huge numbers to watch them train.
Away from the field, there has been opposition by political groups to conduct IPL games in the city as they demand formation of Cauvery Management Board and threaten to disrupt proceedings.
CSK CEO K S Viswanathan, however, said the team's home matches will go on as per schedule. The city police has been informed about the schedule and will handle the situation accordingly, he added.
Pitted against defending champions MI, CSK looked down and out before Dwayne Bravo's heroics helped CSK pull off a stunning heist. Barring Kedar Jadhav and Ambati Rayudu, the rest of the batting faltered and skipper MS Dhoni will hope for a quick turnaround.
