Chepauk is also home to MS Dhoni's IPL side Chennai Super Kings. The home turf of CSK is ready to welcome the franchise after a gap of 3 years.
Chepauk also hosted the India vs Australia 3rd ODI in which the tourists won the toss and decided to bat first. A shocker then was thrown by Aussie captain Steve Smith as he said David Warner was fit to play. However, Warner did not come out to open the innings. Aussies opted for Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh as openers, who have done a brilliant job up at the top for the Australia in this series.
They both put on 68 in no time before Hardik struck and removed Head. Hardik then picked up 2 more wickets - Smith and Marsh- to get India back in the game. At the time of writing of this article, Alex Carey and Marcus Stoinis were busy doing the rebuilding work.
