International Worker’s Day, which is also known as the Labour Day or Worker’s Day is celebrated on May 1 every year. The occasion is celebrated to honour the working classes and the labourers and is also a public holiday in several countries. In India, the day is referred to as Antarrashtriya Shramik Diwas or Kamgar Din. It is also renowned as May Day.

The eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently underway and the groundsmen are in with a strenuous task of keeping the playing conditions and the pitch as per the desired standards. They don’t get much of a breather and have to on their toes throughout the entire tournament. The tournament is halfway and the groundstaff has done a commendable job.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) recently paid tribute to them for the work they have dished out throughout the year. The official Twitter handle of CSK posted a picture where MS Dhoni is standing with the groundsmen at the Chepauk in Chennai and the MCA Stadium in Pune. They posted a collage of the photographs with a message which read

“A super happy #InternationalWorkersDay to each and everyone who contributes to the welfare of the good game. A big shout out to the ground staff in Chepauk and Pune! #whistlepodu #Yellove”

Here is the tweet

From the cricketing viewpoint, CSK have been phenomenal thus far in the league. They have won five out of their seven games and most importantly, they have thrived under pressure because of which they have been able to dictate terms to their opponents. The franchise is at the helm of the league table and is poised to enter the playoff stages in a canter. Chennai will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) next at the Eden Gardens on May 3.
