A die-hard fan of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni broke the security cover to touch his idol’s feet during an Indian Premier League 2018 game between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai at the Eden Gardens on May 2.
The incident happened when Dhoni was getting ready for his batting in CSK’s dugout area inside the stadium.
This was not the first time that such an incident happened with Dhoni.

Earlier, during the IPL 2018 game between CSK and Rajasthan Royals (RR) on April 20, an ardent Dhoni fan broke the security cover and ran inside the playing area to touch Dhoni’s feet.
Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik-led KKR won the toss and elected to field against CSK.
CSK remained unchanged from their last game while KKR’s injured Nitish Rana was replaced by Rinku Singh.
Both CSK and KKR have come into the field on the back of morale-boosting wins in their previous encounters. While Dhoni’s team beat Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 13 runs, Karthik and Co got the better of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets.
