IPL 2019: CSK beat KKR by seven wickets. This has to be the picture fans were waiting for! It could not have got bigger for them when actor Shah Rukh Khan lauded Chennai Super Kings captain, MS Dhoni after CSK beat KKR by seven wickets at Chepauk. It was a treat for fans on social space who went gaga after the social handles of CSK posted the picture. The picture where SRK is in the stands and Dhoni down on the ground is captioned, “*#Thala, Chennai Express Super!* #WhistlePodu #Yellove #CSKvKKR.”

KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan has done a hit Bollywood film titled ‘Chennai Express’ which is where the match was being played, hence SRK too has a connection with the people living in the region and that is the reason behind the caption.

It was a big win for CSK as they went top of the points table.

Here is how fans reacted to the picture of the two legends.

The actor was seen along with a Atlee and Venky Mysore, co-owner KKR, who is a big star in the southern part of India. With the win, CSK go top of the points table.

KKR were outplayed in all the three departments as they slumped to their second loss of the season. This should also act as an eye opener for KKR.

Meanwhile, all-round Chennai Super Kings made short work of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), thrashing them by seven wickets in a lopsided Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter here on Tuesday. The victory saw the defending champions replace KKR at the top of the eight-team points table with 10 points from six matches.

KKR, meanwhile, dropped down to the second spot, having eight points from six outings. After being asked to bat first by home team skipper M.S. Dhoni, the visitors managed just 108/9, riding Andre Russell’s unbeaten yet uncharacteristic 44-ball 50.
