There’s absolutely no doubt in the fact that MS Dhoni has a massive fandom, not only in Chennai but across the entire nation and even outside India. He has helped India to a number of laurels in his glorious cricketing career and the love and admiration for him can be seen everywhere. He is currently plying his trade for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Jharkhand-born has had an impressive tournament thus far, playing some crucial knocks lower down the order. Against the Delhi Capitals (DC), he turned up with a 32 not out in a tight run-chase. The experienced campaigner was at his vintage best in the game against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the M Chidambaram Stadium, where he took the bowling to the cleaners to score 75 runs.
However, yesterday, he couldn’t quite step up and deliver in crisis in CSK’s match against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. He came to bat after the Super Kings lost three early wickets in their run-chase of 171 runs. Nevertheless, he couldn’t make much of an impact, despite a 54-run stand with Kedar Jadhav. He got out to Hardik Pandya after scoring 12 from 21 balls.
Fan shifts loyalty
Following his dismissal, a fan changed his jersey. When Dhoni was batting, he was wearing the CSK jersey and cheering for the 37-year-old with all his might. After his hero perished in the 15th over of the encounter, the supporter removed the Yellow jersey and was seen in the Mumbai Indians (MI) jersey that he was wearing below the Super Kings’ outfit.
This isn’t the first time when a fan has shifted loyalty, based only on MSD. Even in the 2018 edition of the IPL, a couple of fans were seen changing to the CSK jersey when Dhoni came to bat. As far as the match is concerned, the home team won comfortably by 37 runs.
