Here’s What Happened When Dhoni Challenged Shane Watson & Imran Tahir’s Sons For A Sprint-Off
Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) once again proved as to why it is always fans’ favourite team to win the IPL trophy in every season. After losing a match against Mumbai Indians (MI), CSK was quick to bounce back and returned to the winning mode as they defeated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday.
The Chennai team gave a target of 160 runs to the Punjab team and defended it in a quite good manner despite the fact that Punjab has some really big hitters including the West Indian batsman Chris Gayle. R Ashwin led Punjab was restricted to 138 runs and it lost the match by 22 runs after which CSK now sits at the top on the points table with winning 4 out of 5 games.
The match was played at the MA Chidambaram stadium, Chennai and Dhoni thanked the local crowd for turning up and supporting them in the match. Dhoni seemed to be in a very good mood after the match and he also got himself involved in a sprint with Shane Watson and Imran Tahir’s sons.
The young boys were thinking of competing in a sprint when Dhoni came running from behind and challenged both of them. While returning he also picked up Tahir’s son in his arms and had a wonderful time with the kids.
This adorable incident was posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter by the official Twitter handle of CSK with caption, “Jr. #ParasakthiExpress and Jr. Watto having a sprint face-off and a lightning joins them! Priceless! @msdhoni #JustThalaThings #WhistlePodu #Yellove 🦁💛”
