IPL 2024: Netizens go gaga as Dhoni pranks Bravo

IPL 2024: Netizens go gaga as Dhoni pranks Bravo

During his seventeenth IPL 2024 season, former Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni did not contribute with the bat as his team easily defeated the Royal Challengers Bengaluru and the Gujarat Titans, winning by respective margins of six wickets and 63 runs.

The five-time IPL-winning captain has only participated in the major tournament as a wicketkeeper, but that hasn’t lessened the obsession and craze surrounding him in the slightest.

Fans at the stadium go completely crazy every time the captain appears on the large screens located beyond the boundary ropes. Everybody watching was astounded by his age-appropriate mobility when he made an incredibly athletic catch to collect Vijay Shankar off Mitchell’s bowl.

During the custom of shaking hands with both the opposition and teammates after a game, MS Dhoni and current bowling coach Dwayne Bravo shared a humorous moment. Bravo had congratulated and hugged CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad for the team’s decisive win, and Dhoni was next in line. Bravo was startled when Dhoni unexpectedly attempted to strike his lower abdomen, causing Bravo to tremble.

The explosive middle-order batsman from Uttar Pradesh, Sameer Rizvi, 20, made his IPL debut against GT after being picked in the playing XI at the toss. He came into bat halfway through the 19th over of the innings and, with an exquisite sweep on his maiden ball in the IPL, he hammered the seasoned wrist-spinner Rashid Khan for a six over deep square-leg. He proved his raw power when, three balls later, he came down the ground and mistimed it for six again.

During his cameo against Gujarat Giants, Rizvi mentioned that the icon, former Indian captain, had inspired him to play his natural style. Rizvi hailed Dhoni for his quick and significant first innings of 14(6) in the IPL. According to Rizvi, Dhoni advised him to play to the situation’s requirements and to be himself when at bat. He also urged him not to enter the game nervously.

Rizvi stated in a video posted on the IPL’s official website, “Since the game is all about the gameplay itself, Bhaiya (Dhoni) advised me to play the way I usually play. There’s nothing different. All that changes is mentality; skills stay the same. Play according to the situation and never take pressure.”
