Celebrated for his humility and unassuming nature, the former captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, graciously honored a heartfelt request from the ground staff for a photo opportunity following the riveting Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 clash against Delhi Capitals (DC) at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, March 31.

MS Dhoni’s spectacular return

Emerging for his highly anticipated IPL 2024 batting debut following not getting a chance in the previous two encounters against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Gujarat Titans (GT),  Dhoni captivated onlookers with a vintage showcase of power-hitting mastery, accumulating an impressive 37 runs from just 16 deliveries. His innings, highlighted by a scorching 20 runs off Anrich Nortje in CSK’s pursuit of 192 runs, regrettably concluded with a 20 runs deficit for his team.
