The social media was abuzz with speculations over Dhoni’s visit. There were questions on whether Srinavasan and he spoke about the Chennai Super Kings’ return to the Indian Premier League?

Though there’s no word from either of the sides, sources in know of things, confirmed to Sportstar that it was just a normal visit by Dhoni, who also happens to be an employee with the India Cements. “It was a normal courtesy visit. Since he was in Chennai, he wanted to come and meet the people,” the source said.
