Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni might be retired from international cricket. However, he continues to entertain his fans by leading Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.

The IPL 2021 is all set to resume in the United Arab Emirates from next month following a four-month break, as the tournament was suspended in May after the bubbles of four teams were breached by COVID in India. Ahead of the resumption, CSK skipper Dhoni has yet again portrayed a new look.

In a small post shared by IPL's official broadcaster, Star Sports, Dhoni is seen in a filmy attire while seemingly portraying a magician. It seemed like a movie poster, captioned, "Asli picture abhi baaaki hai (The real picture is yet to come). Coming soon."

"#MSDhoni's up to something new before #VIVOIPL! 🧐 Stay tuned for the Asli Picture!" captioned Star Sports. It seems to be a significant change of character that Dhoni portrayed ahead of the start of the season in April when he had mimicked a monk.

Besides, he had also imitated an in-charge of an army school in another pre-season promotion video.

Meanwhile, Dhoni, along with some members of the CSK team, has reached UAE and has completed its mandatory six-day quarantine. The team reportedly also began its training session on Thursday evening at the ICC Academy ground in Dubai.

The tournament starts on September 19, with the opening game between CSK and the defending champion Mumbai Indians in Dubai. Besides Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah would also be used as venues for the tournament, just like the last season. In the meantime, the Emirates Cricket Board is also working on having 60% of the crowd at the venues.
