MS Dhoni Gets Thala Reception at Wankhede During CSK vs KKR IPL 2022 Opener, Watch VIRAL Video | Leaves Harsha Bhogle Speechless
MS Dhoni turned the clock with the bat in hand as the crowd went berserk at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai while he was on his way out to bat - doing what he does best. Taking CSK out of trouble.
Warm Reception For MS Dhoni at Wankhede: Former India and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni got an extraordinary reception at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in the season opener against Kolkata Knight Riders once he walked out to bat. With CSK in a spot of bother, Dhoni came out and did what he has been doing for years. Taking his team out of trouble.
Having lost the top order for not too many, the 40-year-old along with newly-appointed captain Ravindra Jadeja stitched together an unbeaten partnership of 70 runs to take CSK to a respectable total of 131 for 5 at the end of their allotted 20 years. Dhoni started off slowly but got into his groove soon enough and scored an unbeaten 50 (38) that was laced with seven fours and one six. Jadeja, on the other hand, played second fiddle to his former captain and remained unbeaten on 26 off 28 balls.
