After guiding his team to the IPL 2018 title, Dhoni was seen challenging CSK teammate Dwayne Bravo for a three-run dash after Chennai's 8-wicket win over SunRisers Hyderabad in Mumbai. The short video was shared by the official Twitter account of Chennai Super Kings on Monday.
Age is just a number for MS Dhoni. The 36-year-old cricketer and Chennai Super Kings captain have guided CSK seven times in Indian Premier League (IPL) final and in that won three times. The latest video is going viral on social media where Dhoni is challenging his teammate Dwayne Bravo for a three-run dash after Chennai’s 8-wicket win over SunRisers Hyderabad in the IPL final in Mumbai.
The short video was shared by the official Twitter account of Chennai Super Kings on Monday.
"When Thala challenged Champion for a three-run dash, post the victory yesterday! Any guesses who wins it? #whistlepodu #SuperChampions", CSK had captioned it. In the video, Dhoni is seen running along with Bravo for a three-run dash. Both the players were neck and neck throughout the race but eventually, it was Dhoni who won the race by a whisker.
After the match, Dhoni had clarified to all who were doubting CSK's chances in the competition, citing age, that it is just a number.
"We talked a lot about age, but what's more important is the fitness. Rayudu, at 33, it doesn't really matter. Fitness is what matters more than age," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation.
"If you ask most captains, they want players who move well on the field. It doesn't matter if you're 19-20 years old. Age is just a number, but you have to be very fit," added the Chennai skipper.
