It was Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) first loss in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. They just got humbled by Mumbai Indians (MI). But, an elderly die hard Dhoni fan was waiting outside the dressing room. She had a poster in her hand that said “I am here only for Dhoni”. The 37-year-old met her after the match.
He even gave her an autographed jersey and clicked a few selfies.
Touched by the former Indian skipper’s humility, his fans reacted to the viral video on Twitter:
plz plz put full video of #Dhoni it’s such a nice gesture , There is a world beyond cricket too and @msdhoni is a legend even there. Nothing but Love and Respect for him
