With just a few days to go to the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League, Indian cricket stars are having some fun time together before they kick start their respective franchisee duties.

Suresh Raina, who had an impressive performance at the recently-concluded Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka, took to Instagram and posted a picture with teammates Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. "Team bonding lead to fun bonding. @shikhardofficial @virat.kohli #funtimes #fromsouthafrica #teambonding #funtimeswithboys," his post read.

Suresh Raina has led Gujarat Lions in 2016 and 2017 editions. The left-handed batsmen will be playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) again in 2018.

CSK have retained their former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Raina and Ravindra Jadeja for the 11th edition of the domestic league.

Raina is the highest run-scorer in the history of IPL with 4540 runs at an average of 34.13.

Kohli, who was rested for the Nidahas Trophy, will be leading Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kohli took up RCB captaincy back in 2012.

On the other hand, Dhawan will be playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH bought Dhawan for Rs 5.20 crore through the Right to Match (RTM) card after an intense bidding battle between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the 2018 IPL Player's Auction.
