“I didn’t get the tickets, so I bought them in black. It was a total of Rs 64,000. I am yet to pay the school fees. But we wanted to see MS Dhoni just once. My three daughters and I are very happy,” the father told Sportwalk Chennai as quoted by Hindustan Times.

“My father has worked very hard to get these tickets. We were very happy when Dhoni came to play,” one of the fan’s young daughters said.

Talking about the game, Ravindra Jadeja helped Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets, thus handing the Shreyas Iyer-led side its first loss in Indian Premier League 2024.

Jadeja shone with bowling figures of 3 for 18 as CSK restricted KKR to 137 for 9 before captain Ruturaj Gaikwad‘s 67 not out guided the five-time champions home with 14 balls to spare. Jadeja also bagged the Player of the Match award.

“Always enjoy my bowling on these kind of tracks. Was just looking to bowl in good areas. I’ve practiced a lot here – if you bowl in good areas, it helps you. Takes time for visiting team to settle down and plan something. Difficult for them to come here and identify the surface. We know the conditions very well,” said Jadeja after the game.

Dhoni, who came in to bat at number 5 in this game, played only three balls and scored one run off it.
