Former captain of the Indian cricket team MS Dhoni is gearing up for IPL 2018 season. As we know that Dhoni will be leading the team Chennai Super Kings which is returning after a 2-year ban. Fans are already excited to see Chennai Super Kings making an awaited comeback.
IPL will begin in less than a month and the anthem of IPL 11 was launched on Monday evening. To give us a glimpse of his excitement with his fans, Dhoni took to his twitter handle and shared the anthem recently.
More interesting is the fact that the anthem is inspired by the 1957 film “Naya Daur” and is based on the song “Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawano ka”.
Dhoni shared the anthem on Twitter with the caption, “Still some time for the tournament to start but as expected a brilliant campaign to kick it off @IPL @StarSportsIndia”
Take a look at the anthem:
