After 8 years at CSK, Dhoni set to join new IPL team

CHENNAI: If there is one cricketer who has been virtually synonymous with an IPL franchise, it is M S Dhoni. After Chennai Super Kings bought him for the highest price of $1.5 million (then worth about Rs 7.5 crore) at the first IPL auction in January 2008, Dhoni has captained the team in all eight editions of the IPL so far - a record unmatched by any other player.
