IPL 2019: He is the crowd favourite wherever he goes, MS Dhoni is arguably the most popular cricketer in the world. He has a fan following which cannot be compared with others. Especially in Chennai, Dhoni fandom reaches a new high. His popularity was evident when he obliged the groundsmen to a selfie which they will preserve all their life. With a very small gesture, he has touched hearts. It was the last home game for CSK and the yelloves signed off on a high as they beat Delhi Capitals to once again make it to the top of the points table.
Here is the picture where Dhoni is in the centre with the groundstaff who work behind the scenes to set the stage for an epic.
Here is how social media reacted to the gesture:
“I watch the ball and hit the ball. I think by 20th over you are almost ready and you swing at everything. It’s easier for somebody who has played 10 or 15 deliveries than somebody who has just come in to bat. It was holding on a bit, it wasn’t coming on nicely,” said Dhoni at the post-match presentation.
Meanwhile, crowd favourite MS Dhoni bagged the Man of the Match for his 22-ball 44 blitz and a stumping of Shreyas Iyer (44), which proved to be game-changing. Tahir picked up four wickets and was the best bowler for CSK. The Capitals were bundled out for a paltry 99 runs which is the third lowest total of the season.
