MS Dhoni was involved in a heart-warming lap of honor at the Chepauk Stadium on Wednesday and then later celebrated with the ground staff as well.
On Wednesday night, Chennai Super Kings beat table-toppers Delhi Capitals to reclaim the top position in the IPL 2019 points table.
Dhoni was a crucial part of the 80-run win as he played a vital innings of 44 runs off 22 balls and stumped two Delhi players as he bagged the ‘man of the match’ award.
Following the win, Dhoni and co. started distributing tennis balls to all the fans as souvenirs of the final home match of this season of the Indian Premier League.
Then, Dhoni delivered such a simple yet heart touching gesture as he celebrated the win with the ground staff who have worked so hard this season. The ground staff have turned the dismal pitch of the first match of the IPL 2019 season on which chasing a target of 70 runs was tough to a pitch where Chennai scored 175+ runs.
