Vijay vowed that he would be part of every promotional activity of the team and will attend the first home game at Chepauk here on April 23.

“My exact responsibilities are still being worked out, but whatever be the case, I will be part of each and every promotional activity and also try to attend all Chennai Super Kings’ home games, especially the opener on April 23,” he said.
