Due to his calm nature, fans got to see a different style of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni), popularly known as Captain Cool. Before the match against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday, Chennai Super Kings captain Dhoni jokingly ‘slapped’ the team’s fast bowler Deepak Chahar.

In the video going viral on Twitter, Dhoni was walking near the pitch while Chahar was standing there with CSK bowling coach Dwayne Bravo. Chahar was saying something to Bravo that Dhoni came and jokingly tried to slap him but Chahar backed away and then was seen laughing.

Chahar was out of the playing XI for a long time due to injury in the opening match of IPL 2023 against Mumbai Indians. Chahar returned to the playing XI of CSK on May 3 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 45th match of IPL 2023 played at the Ekana Stadium. Although this match was canceled due to rain and CSK had to satisfy with one point.

In the match being played at Chepauk Stadium, Dhoni decided to bat first after winning the toss against Delhi, set a target of 168 for Warner brigade. But DC couldn’t able to touch this target and finished their inning only at 140 runs after losing 8 wickets in 20 overs. Dhoni and Co. have won seven out of 12 league matches and secured 15 points and are currently second in the points table of the 16th season.

However, if Chennai has to secure a place in the playoffs amid the fierce competition of IPL 2023, then it is necessary for them to win at least one of their last two league matches.
