About seven years later, Cheteshwar Pujara, who is returning to the Indian Premier League, was handed the official kit of Chennai Super Kings by team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Pooja then wrote a special message on his Twitter handle, sharing photos with Dhoni and Kit. The CSK team bought Pooja at their original price of Rs 50 lakh at the auction of ISL 2021. Pujara is known as a Test specialist batsman, but this time he has a good chance to prove himself in T20 format.

Pooja shared a photo on his Twitter where Dhoni is giving away the Chennai Super Kings kit. Pooja, who shared the picture, said, ‘I am excited and honored to receive the official kit from Mahendra Singh Dhoni Bhai and the Chennai Super Kings family. Looking forward to doing well this season. The last time Pujara played in the IPL was in 2014, and since then no team has shown interest in taking on this Indian batsman.
Maxwell said he was not surprised why it was sold for Rs 14.25 crore
Pujara has recently said that he is not a power hitter batsman and will try to perform in IPL 2021 based on the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Talking about the strike rate, Pujara said, “Yes, I agree that I am not a power hitter when it comes to the strike rate.” But at the same time you learn from players like Virat. Rohit is not a complete power hitter but he is one of the best hitters with limited time in the format. You learn from players like Kane Williamson. Also by Steve Smith. All of them only run with good cricket shots and try to do something new.
