Written by Rohit Pawar

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni expressed gratitude towards the Eden Gardens crowd, where the yellow jersey took precedence over purple. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have a loyal fanbase, however, in the Sunday night game the crowd came in to cheer the men in yellow as there is speculation of Dhoni retiring from IPL post this season.

The World cup winning captain is yet to make any announcement regarding his last season but the speculation is all around and therefore even in away matches, CSK is seeing huge support from the crowd. During the presentation when asked about the Eden Garden turnout Dhoni said that they are there to give him a farewell.

“I will just say thanks for the support, they came in big numbers. Most of these guys will come in a KKR jersey next time. They are trying to give me a farewell, so thanks a lot to the crowd,” Dhoni remarked.

In theĀ  game against KKR, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube guided Chennai Super Kings to a 49-run win as CSK jumped to the top of the points table. Dhoni praised his bowlers for their impressive effort with the ball.

“Yes, the fast bowlers and spinners have been doing their job. We always kept the pressure on the opposition and if you see their batting line-up, they have big hitters down the order and we respect that. I keep it simple,” the CSK captain said.
