Till four years back, Dhoni as the national captain across formats and Srinivasan as the powerful board president ruled Indian cricket.

Watching Dhoni and Srinivasan interact was like a throwback to the earlier days as CSK are making a comeback after two-year suspension from the Indian Premier League.

With most of the players touching base, it was a full-fledged training session under the watchful eyes of assistant coach Mike Hussey and bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji.

Skipper Dhoni, who had a hit on Thursday, was joined by Raina, Vijay, Jadeja and Ambati Rayudu among others.

Vijay, who expressed happiness to be back with CSK at an event, spent time against the mix of local bowlers and the franchise's recruits.

Former India player Balaji, the bowling coach, was seen interacting with the team members.

Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh too has landed in the city. He was picked up by CSK at the IPL auctions for Rs 2 crore. Harbhajan took to the social media to announce his new jersey number.

He wrote on Twitter: "27.. yes a very special number for me ! new number new journey .. let the party begin! #whistlepodu. He, however, was not present at the training session.

The head coach, former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming will join the squad on 27 March, informed team CEO Kashi Viswanathan.
