IPL 2020: MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi celebrates CSK win
First Published 5, Oct 2020, 12:54 PM
Sakshi Dhoni, MS Dhoni’s wife, expressed her share of joy on Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) easy win against King XI Punjab (KXIP). She took to her Instagram handle and celebrated the win.
A drooping start of the tournament nearly led almost all CSK fans in utter disappointment. With rare chances of CSK losing a match, the yellow brigade lost three consecutive ones, which was quite a mammoth for CSK fans to digest.
However, one couldn’t have witnessed a more solid comeback after such consecutive setbacks. Just like fans took to celebrate the 10-wicket victory, Sakshi Dhoni, too, gave a vent to her feelings, as she congratulated the team following their comeback.
The turbulent opening stand was the prime reason for CSK’s underperformance in the initial three matches. With Shane Watson being constant, it was Faf du Plessis, who was sent up the order in the last to matches, as he proved himself at that spot too. Faf, who is one of the leading run-scorers this season, made a match-winning opening stand with Shane Watson, who was an underperformer in the initial matches.
Sakshi Dhoni, who herself is a cricket buff now, is often seen at CSK matches, along with her daughter Ziva. Amid the pandemic, she is diligently following cricket from home. Recently, she congratulated the team by posting a picture of Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis on her Instagram. In the story, she captioned “Class Act! #whistlepodu.”
CSK, after their comprehensive win, bagged the sixth spot in the points table. This will give confidence to the franchise for their upcoming matches in the tournament.
