There are many players who are known for their fiery nature or aggressive play on the field. However, there are some players who are known to be very quiet on the field. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is also included among the same players. Dhoni’s calm demeanor on the field is what the cricketing world calls him ‘Captain Cool’. Dhoni has rarely been seen angry on the field. However, Dhoni also has a soft side, which his former Indian and Chennai Super Kings team-mate Harbhajan Singh has revealed.
In a video shared by Star Sports, Harbhajan Singh disclosed. He said that the Chennai Super Kings team was suspended for two seasons of the IPL due to their alleged involvement in the betting scandal. After that, the CSK team made a comeback in the tournament in 2018.
In this video, former CSK player Imran Tahir also confirmed Harbhajan’s statement. He said that at that time he realized how close the Chennai team is to MS Dhoni.
Harbhajan Singh said, “There is a story, which I want to tell. In 2018, when CSK returned to the tournament after a 2-year ban, the team sat down for dinner. I had heard that, ‘Men don’t cry.’ However, MS Dhoni cried that night. He was very emotional. I think no one knows about this. Right Imran?”
Corroborating Harbhajan, Tahir said, “Yes, of course. I was there too. It was a very emotional moment for MS Dhoni. Seeing him like that, I realized how close this team is to his heart. He considers the team as his family. It was a very emotional moment for all of us.”
Speaking further, Tahir said, “We made a comeback after 2 years and won the trophy. When people tag your team as ‘old’, and I was in the team that season, but we won the trophy. I am very proud of that title.”
It was the third IPL title for Chennai Super Kings. Before that, Chennai had won the trophy for two consecutive seasons in 2010 and 2011. Also, Chennai won the title in the 2021 IPL season as well.
Now the first qualifier match of IPL 2023 is on Tuesday (May 23) Chennai Super Kings Vs. Gujarat Titans (Chennai Super Kings vs Gujarat Titans) will be played in the team.
