Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper, MS Dhoni is currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in the second leg of the tournament in the UAE. He has a lot of experience up his sleeves and the youngsters, every now and then, try to pick his brains discussing various cricketing things. Sunday was no different in Dubai as Dhoni was seen giving some tips to the youngsters from the Mumbai Indians team.
The CSK vs MI encounter was one of the most exciting games of the IPL 2021 as after MI snapped up four quick wickets, the Men in Yellow made a comeback owing to a brilliant knock of Ruturaj Gaikwad as he helped his team to propel his team to a competitive score.
The Kieron Pollard-led team was looking good to chase down the score of 156 runs for most parts of the innings but couldn’t get home to lose their fourth game of the season. After the match, MS Dhoni was spotted speaking to the likes of Ishan Kishan and Anukul Roy from the MI camp.
All the three players belong to Jharkhand and as usual, the CSK skipper was seen giving valuable tips to the young players. It was MS Dhoni who trapped Kishan in the second innings by putting a fielder at the short extra cover for his uppish drive and the latter fell into the trap.
As for Anukul Roy, he was warming the bench and is yet to feature this season for the Mumbai Indians. MI’s official Twitter handle posted the video of MS Dhoni speaking to the youngsters and captioned it as, “The Jharkhand connection.”
