MS Dhoni is giving serious fitness goals! CSK won their third IPL title, defeating a formidable SunRisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets. At the outset, when the IPL auctions took place, CSK were touted as the ‘Dad’s Army’ in cricketing quarters. But it seems age is just a number as MS Dhoni (36) at the twilight of his career has revamped himself again. But what we are speaking about is a moment after the all-important final, where we got to see MS Dhoni challenging a 34-year-old Dwayne Bravo for a sprint along the playing strip at Wankhede. Mind you, all this happened after an exhausting game of cricket. Yes, both the star CSK players did not get a bat during the match, maybe that helped them give it their all. We saw Dhoni, with Bravo alongside him sprint to their hearts content. What shocked us was the spirit and the speed.

In the latest video, both the cricketers are wearing the yellow jersey, but do not have the other apparels on like the pads and the gloves. That must have helped the two cricketers run ever better and also attain a higher speed. Also Read - IPL 2021: Aakash Chopra Advises Chennai Super Kings to Release MS Dhoni at Mega Auction

Meanwhile, it was a big moment for MS Dhoni as he added another feather to his crown by clinching the coveted IPL title. CSK was re-entering the tournament after a hiatus of two years and the expectations were sky-high from the yelloves and they lived up to the expectations, every bit! On the big night Rashid Khan was expected to wreck havoc, but he went surprisingly wicketless and that pegged back the chances of the Orange Army.
It was experience that saw CSK over the line at the fag end of the tournament. If it was Faf du Plessis who saw them through to the finals with an unbeaten 67 it was the turn of Shane Watson to come to the party and make hey in the finals with a staggering 117*, which saw CSK through.
