Dhoni saw something special in the youngster and he has become a vital cog in CSK’s wheel since then.
Former CSK batsman Ambati Rayudu claimed in a recent television interview that the purported argument between both the players was nothing more than media rumours.
Dhoni is the only captain under whose leadership India have won three major ICC trophies. Dhoni also had to deal with many controversies both on and off the field.
Notably, Dhoni will turn 42 on July 7 next month. However, age will not be a barrier for him to lead CSK in IPL 2024 next year.
As per Viswanathan, Dhoni was visibly emotional and it had a lot to with him getting out in the final.
Despite CSK’s splendid success, IPL 2023 was also surrounded by the rift rumours between Jadeja and captain MS Dhoni. Several fans were of the opinion that all is not well between Dhoni and Jadeja.
Rayudu is also reportedly planning to enter politics and he may contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Moreover, the video also sparked rumours about the Captain Cool’s retirement from IPL.
CEO of the five-time champions, Kasi Vishwanath, has welcomed Dhoni’s call.
Rivaba could be seen coming down to the ground and touching Jadeja’s feet before hugging him.
Ravindra Jadeja is famous for his sword-wielding celebrations on the field whenever he gets to a landmark while batting.
Apart from Captain Cool Dhoni’s emotional moments with his family, a video clip of CSK swing bowler Deepak Chahar's hilarious dance is going viral over various social media platforms.
Nearly two months later, as CSK defeated GT in the season final to win their fifth IPL crown, Dhoni revealed he was emotional in the last phase of his career.
From Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium to Bangalore’s roads, jubilant fans chanted 'Dhoni' 'Dhoni' as CSK registered the historic fifth IPL title win against defending champion GT.
The Captain Cool admitted that it was probably the right time for him to bid adieu to his beloved game by announcing his retirement from IPL, but like any typical answer, there was more to it.
Dhoni has been the cynosure of all eyes ever since the Indian Premier League began this year and in a fitting end to the finale, the captain finished with a record-levelling fifth trophy.
Mohit Sharma bowled excellent yorkers and gave just three runs in the first four balls. But Jadeja had other plans and he hit a six and four in the last two balls to give CSK a thrilling five-wicket win and record fifth title.
Rayudu confirmed that the IPL final of the 2023 edition against Gujarat Titans (GT) will be his last match in the tournament.
"I have ample time to decide. The auction is in December," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation
With 35 needing in 12 balls, Rashid Khan smashed a boundary on the first ball of the penultimate over but, a moment later, Tushar Deshpande dismissed GT's only hope, Rashid.
