IPL 2021: MS Dhoni and Co celebrate CSK coach Stephen Fleming’s birthday; Earlier today, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) took to social media to share a short video of MS Dhoni and CSK teammates celebrating coach Stephen Fleming’s birthday.

The former Kiwi skipper turned 48 on April 1. The CSK players are currently in their bio-secure bubble, preparing for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. IPL 2021 is set to begin on April 9.

In the video, Stephen Fleming could be seen cutting the birthday cake, with the likes of Dhoni and Suresh Raina clapping applauding.

Taking to Twitter, CSK captioned the video as, “Bonds beyond boundaries! Siripu Enipu and a lot of #Yellove to you Coach @SPFleming7 . #WhistlePodu #SavourTheMoment”.

CSK had a poor campaign last season, finishing seventh in an eight-team table. Led by Dhoni, they won six matches and lost eight fixtures.
