Bengaluru: Fans and players are still waiting to hear from the BCCI about this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) as India continues to be under a lockdown due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In these difficult times, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) players are enthralling their fans with their favourite IPL moments.

Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden took to his Twitter account on Monday (April 13) to speak about his favourite IPL moments with CSK. He recalled a match where captain MS Dhoni (29-ball 54) and Suresh Raina (46 off 27) took them into the IPL final after helping the team defeat Kings XI Punjab. This happened in Dharamsala on April 18, 2010.
