Chennai Super Kings has always been one of the favourite teams for winning the IPL every year not just because it is lead by the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni but also because it has played good cricket every year and won the IPL trophy two times.
There is no denying the fact that Dhoni has a smart cricketing brain and he plays an important role in the players’ selection for CSK. If we look at the team composition, it is not difficult to understand that the team has always preferred experience over youth.
This time CSK has made a comeback after two years and other than Dhoni, there were two players who were retained by the franchise ahead of the auction – Suresh Raina and Ravinder Jadeja. One of the new names that are included in the squad of CSK this year is South African cricketer Lungi Ngidi.
If you remember, he performed really well against India when both the countries clashed in the test series and based on that performance, he was bagged by CSK for Rs. 50 lakhs.
Lungi has gone through tough times before he tasted success in his life and he took to Twitter to share a fact about his life.
He tweeted, “Fun fact: There was a stage my brothers and i used to sit and sell peanuts on the side of the road 😅😂”

Lungi had to go home leaving the tournament in middle due to the untimely demise of his father.
There are many other players like Lungi who have faced many problems in life but they never stopped working hard to make their dreams come true.
