Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is one of the most popular and successful teams in the history of the Indian Premier League. The franchise has a massive fanbase all around the world and the relationship between the former legendary Indian captain MS Dhoni and CSK has been unbreakable. Dhoni, popularly known as ‘Captain Cool’, is the captain of CSK since the first season of the cash-rich league.
Meanwhile, former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who was a part of CSK, has revealed how special the franchise is to Dhoni as a video of Harbhajan is getting viral on social media in which he revealed how Dhoni got emotional in front of his teammates. Harbhajan said in the video that CSK returned after 2 years in IPL 2018 and due to this Dhoni could not hold back his tears when the team came on the field for the first time in IPL 2018 after the ban.
“There is a story that I want to share. Back in 2018, when CSK made a comeback to this league after a two-year ban there was a team dinner. We must have heard the saying that ‘Men don’t cry’, but MS Dhoni cried on that night. He became emotional. I think no one knows about this,” Harbhajan was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
I came to know how close this team is to his heart: Imran Tahir
CSK are still dominating in the richest cricket league in the world as they have successfully qualified for the playoffs and will be facing the defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) on May 23 in the first qualifier. Meanwhile, Imran Tahir shed more light on the incident who was also part of the CSK team, and said, “Even I was there. It was a very emotional moment for him (MS Dhoni). Looking at him like that, I came to know how close this team is to his heart. He considers the team as his family. It was very emotional for all of us.
“We came back after two years and won the trophy when people gave our team the tag of buddhe (old men). Even though I was in the squad that season, but we won the title. I am very proud of that victory.”
