In a glittering function that had loads of dance and music, the Chennai Super Kings cricket team was launched here on Saturday.
The team — none of the foreign players could make it due to “prior commitments” — was introduced to the gathering.
Chennai Super Kings assistant coach, V.B. Chandrasekhar, described the team as a group of “fearless entertainers.”
K. Srikkanth, the brand ambassador of the Chennai Super Kings, explained why he was the perfect man to represent the team. “As a player I never lasted more than 20 overs. Did I?” the former India captain said.
M.S. Dhoni, the skipper of the team, said he is proud to lead a young team. “Our ultimate aim is to win the Trophy,” he said unveiling the team apparel whose sponsor is Reebok.
The Brand ambassadors of the team, actors Vijay and Nayanthara, Gurdeep Singh, Chief Operating Officer, Aircel Cellular Limited, the team sponsor, were also present at the function.
