Prior to the match, CSK’s social media handle had kept the fans in suspense through a social media post. In the post, CSK said, “Requesting the Superfans to Stay back after the game! Something special coming your way!”

Although many fans said that it would be a lap of honour, in reaction to the post, some fans claimed that it could be Dhoni’s retirement. A video has gone viral of the event, where Dhoni can be seen hitting some tennis balls to the fans, who also are holding a huge banner with his face.

Here is the video:

On Sunday, CSK were set a target of 142 runs and they cruised to 145/5 in 18.2 overs, courtesy of an unbeaten knock of 42 runs off 41 balls by Ruturaj Gaikwad. Meanwhile, R Ashwin took two wickets for RR.

Initially, Riyan Parag smacked an unbeaten knock of 47 runs off 35 balls to take RR to 141/5 in 20 overs. For CSK’s bowling department, Simarjeet Singh reigned supreme with a three-wicket haul.

Dhoni has been in good form this season, and has been given the role to come lower down the order and make a big impact in the death overs. He has registered 136 runs in 13 matches, with a strike rate of 226.66.
