IPL 2019: MS Dhoni playing ‘catch me if you can’ has become a feature of the loved former captain of India. After Chennai beat Punjab by 22 runs at Chepauk, Dhoni was seen teasing Shane Watson’s kid into chasing him as he ran away from them. The kid gave a fair chase before Dhoni stopped running. It was hilarious as there was another Chennai fan whom he carried on his lap later. These are things that make Dhoni a fan favourite. This is also not the first or last time we will see Dhoni engaged in such fan episodes. Also Read - IPL 2021: MS Dhoni to Join CSK Camp in Chennai on March 11

Meanwhile, opener K.L. Rahul (55 off 47) and Sarfaraz Khan’s (67 off 59) laborious efforts went in vain as Chennai Super Kings held their nerves to beat Kings XI Punjab by 22 runs in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here on Saturday.
Chasing a modest 161-run target, the visitors received couple of early jolts before Rahul and Sarfaraz anchored the Punjab innings with a crucial 110-run stand for the second wicket. However, it was not enough to help them cross the line as Chennai registered their fourth win from five matches.
Brief Scores: CSK 160/3 in 20 overs (Faf du Plessis 54, M.S. Dhoni 37*; R. Ashwin 3/23) beat Kings XI Punjab 138/5 in 20 overs (Sarfaraz Khan 67, K.L. Rahul 55; Harbhajan Singh 2/17, Scott Kuggeleijn 2/37) by 22 runs.
