Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and have opted to field
MS Dhoni – We are bowling first. Pitch looks good as of now, quiet a few venues are getting dew. It is too early for any spice in the tournament. We have a forced change. Suresh raina is not fit, he is not ready so Murali Vijay comes in place of him. I don’t have any serious niggle. We are a team of over-aged people so we have to keep ourselves fit. It is all about the process.
