Why wouldn’t the Chennai Super Kings players be in a good mood yesterday? The 2023 Indian Premier League champions were crowned. CSK won the final by 5 wickets over Gujarat Titans (GT) to win a record-equaling five IPL Trophies at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Monday 29th May. They have now equaled Mumbai Indians record for most IPL trophies.
As expected, several videos of that moment went viral immediately after the win. The most popular videos were those that showed Dhoni reacting.
After denying a lot when Chahar still insisted on getting his autograph, an irritated Dhoni first told something about Chahar to IPL chairman a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajeev_Shukla”>Rajeev Shukla/a> before signing the jersey. Dhoni, who was irritated by Chahar’s persistence in getting his autograph despite his denials, told Rajeev Shkla something about Chahar before signing the jersey. Dhoni’s exact words are unknown, but he is seen saying ‘catch-nahi-pakda’ (you dropped your catch). Chahar dropped Shubman’s catch in GT’s earlier innings.
It’s not the first time that the two have engaged in hilarious banter. Dhoni almost hit Chahar, who was sitting near him, during a match early in the season. Chahar had to move. In another incident, Chahar, while talking to CSK’s bowling coach Dwyane Bouche, was almost hit by Dhoni who was walking towards them.
Deepakchahar revealed a previously unheard story about MS Dhoni
Deepak Chahar, in an episode of Breakfast with Champions aired a previously unheard story about MS Dhoni and how he overruled coach Stephen Fleming’s decision regarding team composition.
Chahar was signed by CSK for 2018 after playing his first match in 2016 under Dhoni. Chahar was initially reluctant to be played by Fleming, but Dhoni insisted on giving him all 14 matches.
Chahar stated that “in 2018, CSK selected me in the auction and Fleming refused to play me. Mahi bhai disagreed, stating, ‘He is going to play all 14 games this year,'” Chahar said. “Our CEO revealed to me that my name was always the first .” when our team was formed.
