Legendary cricketer MS Dhoni has been the beating heart of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008. The charismatic leader of the Chennai-based franchise guided the Yellow Brigade to their fourth IPL title in the 14th season of domestic cricket’s biggest extravaganza. After recording their worst-ever campaign in the IPL last year, Dhoni made sure CSK bounce back by lifting the famous trophy for the fourth time in the world’s richest T20 league.

On Saturday, Dhoni addressed a gathering at the Champions Call – a celebration event organized by the newly crowned IPL champions in Chennai. CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan had earlier confirmed that the franchise will celebrate the title win only when Dhoni returns home after his stint as the mentor of the Team India side for the ICC World T20 2021.

Talking about his iconic stint with CSK in the presence of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, franchise CEO N Srinivasan, legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev, BCCI secretary Jay Shah, and IPL chairman Brijesh Patel, the legendary wicketkeeper batter opened up about what all he has learned from Chennai over the years. Dhoni also gave Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar a special mention in his memorable speech at the Champions Call.

“I believe Chennai taught me a lot, Tamil Nadu taught a lot on how to conduct myself, how to appreciate the game. Each and every game we played in Chennai, the fans came and supported us. I think Sachin (Tendulkar) paaji got the biggest ovation whenever he walked out, even when he played for Mumbai Indians,” Dhoni said.

One of the most successful captains in the history of cricket, Dhoni also revealed that he will play his last T20 game in Chennai although the Ranchi stalwart is not sure “whether it is next year or in five years’ time”. The former Team India skipper was earlier in speculations about finishing his T20 career by bidding farewell to IPL cricket after CSK’s fourth title triumph. Dhoni became the oldest captain to win an IPL title after CSK defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 27 runs in the summit clash of the 14th season.
