In the video, the CSK physio can be seen explaining the rules of the game. Simsek said, “The Italians play this game where they throw steel balls. They have one ball that is called the Jack. You have three or four other balls and whoever gets closest to the Jack gets a point. If two of your balls are closer than your opposition then you get two points.”

He further added, “So we use a couple of cricket balls and we play Bocce; an adapted version of Bocce. It’s first to 11 usually.” Also revealing that he is better than Dhoni, he quipped, “I always beat him. He is a very good cricketer, but I am much better at Bocce.”

CSK will be facing the Delhi Capitals (DC) in their opening game and will be aiming for a better display this year, after finishing seventh in 2020.
