Franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are easily one of the most iconic sides in the coveted IPL (Indian Premier League). With five titles to their name, the side has garnered fans from all over the country, and a lot has been credited to the legendary wicketkeeper, MS Dhoni.

However, with the advent of the IPL 2024, the hierarchy in the CSK camp has changed. MS Dhoni has stepped down as the captain of the side, letting the youngsters shine and carry the franchise’s legacy forward. 

The same was the case in the side’s recent clash against Mumbai Indians when Chennai defeated Mumbai by 20 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. A picture from the game has been going viral all over social media as veteran MS Dhoni was captured asking new captain Ruturaj Gaikwad to give him a pat on the back.
