CSK Is An Emotion, Not Just A Team. Proof Is in This Video From MS Dhoni’s Den

When Chennai Super Kings faced Rajasthan Royals in their final home game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on May 12, the Chepauk saw a sea of yellow. For CSK, who won the home match by five wickets to maintain their hopes of making the playoffs, it was a “do or die” situation. The Chennai-based team asked the home audience to remain after the game.

To honor the players and show gratitude to the supporters, a post-match celebration was scheduled. It seems that everyone in attendance at the location accepted the invitation. Mpumelelo Mbangwa, a former cricket player from Zimbabwe, was taken aback to see the whole Chepuak team still seated long after the on-field action had concluded.

Mbangwa was one of the commentators covering the MA Chidambaram Stadium game between the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings. Mbangwa was about to go, and the other panelists had already signed off. He then turned to check outside and saw that no CSK supporters had yet to get up from their seats.

The sight so stunned Mbangwa that he assumed the faithful’s allegiance to CSK. The former cricket player, who is now a pundit, posted a face-cam video on Instagram to express his joy. The post’s caption said, “Team and fans are together.”

“Observe the throng. They remain at this place. Nobody has moved, and everyone is seated. In the footage, Mpumelelo Mbangwa was heard remarking, “It seems like another game is to go on.” With thunderous applause resounding from every part of Chepauk, Harsha Bhogle was preparing for the post-match presentation ceremony at that precise time.

Every member of the Chennai Super Kings received a lap of honor during the post-match festivities. The players, including MS Dhoni, strolled around the pitch and waved to the spectators. Also, the former captain of CSK threw several autographed tennis balls into the throng. Former Super Kings player Suresh Raina also made an appearance during the function.

In the last league game of the season, the Chennai Super Kings will try to build on their victory against the Rajasthan Royals. On May 18, the defending champions and Royal Challengers Bengaluru will square off at Chinnaswamy. By taking two points from the road game, CSK hopes to advance to the playoffs.
