CSK Fan club shared the video of MS Dhoni’s arrival and posing for a little fan at the airport. In the video, we can see MS Dhoni blessing his little fan as she poses for a picture with him.
Sharing the arrival of Thala on Twitter, the fan club wrote, “The presence of Thala Dhoni in Chennai gives a different vibe. The excitement and emotions are a different level! RT if you are one of those fans whose energy levels go up with MS Dhoni in Chennai.”
Fans of the talismanic skipper are excited as this might be his last IPL season. Reports suggest Chennai Super Kings paid a whopping amount for Ben Stokes who is going to replace Dhoni. While fans are eagerly waiting for this year’s IPL, Dhoni will hopefully finish on a high in the yellow and not disappoint his fans this year.
