IPL 2019: MS Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings landed in Kolkata during Friday night for their next fixture against KKR. It was a surprise that fans were waiting to welcome the CSK skipper so late in the night outside the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose airport. Fans went ballistic chanting ‘Dhoni, Dhoni’ when they got a glimpse of him in the yellow. The entire CSK squad was there and Sakshi was also present. Table-toppers CSK will lock horns with KKR which will be their away game. CSK beat KKR at home earlier this week.

Here is the video where you can see Dhoni gets a king-like welcome:

Meanwhile, defending champions CSK are on a roll. They have won six out of the eight games they have played so far. Dhoni has been in good form with the bat, he scored a breathtaking 58 off 43 balls to help CSK gun down 151 against the Royals off the last ball. CSK was in a spot of bother when they were reduced to 24/4 chasing 151. Rayudu-Dhoni stitched a timely 105 run stand to bail CSK out of trouble.

Dhoni has already hit the nets at Eden Gardens. Dhoni knows this venue better than most. KKR is a team that is low-in-confidence after back to back losses to Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals.
