While most Indian cricket fans admire MS Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans worship him. Throughout the tournament, we have seen fans breaking the barriers to get a glimpse or to touch feet of their ‘Thalla’. The footfall in the stadium has not decreased despite CSK games being shifted from their homeground to Pune. After a win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), a young kid ran towards Dhoni and touched his feet as soon as the game finished.
Such is the love from CSK fans towards Dhoni that they do not disappoint in showing their affection for him as he has returned to CSK after the team was banned for two years.
Here’s the video of the young kid showing his respect for CSK skipper –

Dhoni came into bat when CSK batting lineup started to falter during a low score run chase against RCB. After two quick wickets of Ambati Rayudu and Dhruv Shorey, Dhoni held the fort with Dwayne Bravo. He shared a crucial partnership with Bravo and cruised towards the target.
In the 18th over, Dhoni was in a hurry to finish off the match and Yuzvendra Chahal only helped him do it by bowling a no ball. Dhoni struck three sixes in that over and took CSK home. He scored 31 runs from 23 balls including 1 four and 3 sixes. CSK are currently second in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 points table with 7 wins out of 10 games.
