MS Dhoni’s appeal extends nationwide, but nowhere is it more evident than at Chepauk, home of Chennai Super Kings. Over the years, Dhoni has entrenched himself in Chennai’s heart, becoming a local icon.

Even at 42, the fervor surrounding Dhoni’s every move at the crease is unparalleled. Chennai fans go to great lengths, even cheering their own team’s dismissals if it means Dhoni’s arrival.

In a recent match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Dhoni, typically batting lower down the order, elevated himself to No. 5 in a gesture of confidence. Although he scored just one run, CSK clinched a convincing victory with Ruturaj Gaikwad’s unbeaten 67.

Beyond the on-field action, CSK players find amusement in the dugout. Ravindra Jadeja’s playful antics, marching out only to retreat before Dhoni’s entrance, delighted the home crowd.

Jadeja’s stellar performance earned him the Player of the Match accolade, highlighting his bowling prowess with three wickets for 18 runs.

Reflecting on the game, Jadeja emphasized the advantage of familiarity with Chepauk’s conditions, a sentiment echoed by many players.

With the win against KKR, CSK boasts three victories in five matches, all secured at their home ground, reinforcing their dominance on familiar turf.
