Pune: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni is currently in the form of his life in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). With three half-centuries to his name this season, ‘Thala’ Dhoni has already aggregated 360 runs from 10 matches at a huge strike rate of 165. 89 and an average of 90.
The fan-following for CSK’s popular cricketer seems to be continuing as another fan breached the security to enter the field and fall at the captain’s feet.
The incident happened soon after Dwayne Bravo sealed their match against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday.
After losing wickets at the start, the duo of Dhoni (31 not out) and Bravo (14 not out) guided the hosts to a six-wicket win against RCB, a victory which dashed the visitors’ hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
Recently, during CSK’s game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), in a similar incident, a fan broke the security laws and went to touch the Jharkhand batsman’s feet at the dugout.
With playoff hopes in sight, the Men in Yellow will now travel to Jaipur, where they will lock horns with Ajinkya Rahane’s Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Friday....
