Fans of MS Dhoni eagerly waited for their idol to come to bat during a Chennai Super Kings (CSK) match. They cheered after every CSK wicket fell, leading some observers to question why CSK fans were celebrating their own batters’ dismissals. The reason behind this peculiar behavior was the fans’ excitement to witness Mahi’s batting. Unfortunately, their hopes were dashed as Dhoni never had the opportunity to bat in that particular match, leaving the fans disappointed.

During the IPL match vs Gujarat Giants, there was a thrilling moment when Dhoni grabbed a spectacular catch by diving to his right to dismiss Vijay Shankar off Daryl Mitchell’s bowling. The stadium erupted in joy, and the crowd’s cheers reached deafening levels, all thanks to MSD’s acrobatic and agile effort.

The commentators on JioCinema couldn’t contain their excitement and were overwhelmed by Dhoni’s exceptional catch. CSK veteran Suresh Raina, who was among the commentators, exclaimed, “Tiger zinda hai (The tiger is alive!).” Another commentator remarked on Dhoni’s agility, despite his age of 42, saying that he fielded like a 24-year-old.

Cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar was also impressed by Dhoni’s acrobatic catch, expressing his joy by exclaiming, “The man!” Mohammed Kaif later posted on X (formerly Twitter), praising Dhoni’s supreme physical fitness with the words, “Supreme physical fitness.. picture abhi baki hai mere dost” (The picture is still left, my friend). Irfan Pathan also took to social media, posting, “Udta Dhoni…. What a catch” (Flying Dhoni… What a catch).

Netizens reacted with joy and excitement as the first moment of pride unfolded in yesterday’s match for Dhoni fans. One user posted, “Age is just a number,” highlighting Dhoni’s enduring excellence on the field despite his age.

“Thala MS Dhoni setting standards high,” wrote another user, acknowledging Dhoni’s continued excellence. “He is 42,” reminded yet another, emphasizing Dhoni’s remarkable performance at his age. “Vintage Thala,” wrote another, appreciating Dhoni’s enduring class and skill.

Under the leadership of Ruturaj Gaikwad, the defending champions made strategic decisions to promote younger players like Sameer Rizvi, who batted ahead of Dhoni and played a crucial role by hitting two sixes to propel his team forward. Although the spectators at Chepauk missed the chance to witness Dhoni’s batting, the “best moment” of the match for Dhoni fans occurred later when Gujarat Titans (GT) were batting.
