CSK is gearing up for their last home game of the Indian Premier League 2024 season, scheduled for Sunday, May 12. They’ve shared a touching message for MS Dhoni, acknowledging his commitment despite battling an injury throughout the IPL. CSK revealed that Dhoni has been bravely soldiering on despite the pain, embodying true leadership. This upcoming match against RR might also mark Dhoni’s farewell at home if CSK fails to secure a playoff spot this season

There have been widespread reports suggesting that MS Dhoni has been contending with a muscle tear during the current season. Dhoni’s visible limping on multiple occasions has fueled speculation that his injury resembles last year’s. During the 2023 season, Dhoni struggled with a similar ailment, which eventually led to knee surgery and his subsequent return for the 2024 season

CSK tweeted ahead of their home game, stating “Despite his old age. Despite the pain. Despite the reduced strength. A hero never stops wielding his sword!”

Earlier in the season, RR opener Jos Buttler expressed his admiration for Dhoni, highlighting that for many worldwide, the highlight of the IPL is witnessing Dhoni’s batting prowess and his ability to execute shots that only he can master. CSK has garnered significant support from crowds in all their away matches this season, indicating the unwavering backing for the former CSK and India captain. Captains of other franchises have acknowledged Dhoni’s enduring appeal, noting that whenever Chennai visits their home ground, it feels like they’re playing an away game due to the overwhelming support for Dhoni, even at the age of 42.

CSK currently occupies the fourth position in the Indian Premier League points table, having secured 6 wins in 12 matches. They find themselves level on points with DC and LSG, setting the stage for a three-way tussle for the fourth and final playoff spot, provided SRH triumphs in their last two games.

As of now, KKR stands as the sole team to have secured a spot in the IPL playoffs for this season. Their qualification was sealed following a victory over MI in their home game on Saturday, May 11th.
