Playing in Chennai since 2004, I have fallen in love with the culture here. I love my comrades. I have played with Anirudh Srikkanth. I have also played with S Badrinath and L Balaji. I like the culture of Chennai. I am lucky to be a part of CSK.

@ImRaina you should be ashamed of yourself.
It seems that you have never experienced real Chennai culture though you have been playing many years for Chennai team. https://t.co/ZICLRr0ZLh
