MS Dhoni led the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to another title glory in the recently-concluded IPL 2023 season. While several fans speculated if the season was his last, the veteran wicketkeeper himself hinted out at a possibility of returning to the tournament one more time next year.
During one of the IPL 2023 games in Chennai, Dhoni was seen signing Sunil Gavaskar’s shirt upon the latter’s request. Gavaskar had run away from camera during his post-match analysis show, and rushed towards the CSK skipper like a fan to get his autograph. The two former Indian cricketers shared a light-hearted moment, and were seen hugging each other during CSK’s lap of honour at their home venue.
KKR star Rinku Singh also had his fanboy moment with the CSK legend this season. The IPL cult hero received a signed jersey from MS Dhoni, after starring in KKR’s win against the ‘Yellow Brigade’.
Dhoni’s simplicity surely knows no bounds, as the World Cup-winning skipper has now fulfilled a request of a humble CSK fan.

An image circulating on social media shows that MS Dhoni has signed a CSK jersey for a humble fan upon the latter’s request. The 42-year-old can be seen posing for a photograph with the fan in question, with both holding the special CSK jersey.
Dhoni’s IPL 2023 win marked his fifth as captain, thus making him IPL’s most successful skipper alongside Mumbai Indians’ famed leader Rohit Sharma.
Upon being asked if he would return to lead CSK in 2024, the legendary stumper said that he would do it for his fans if his body permits.
