Dhoni’s Voice Started To Shake While Making Emotional Promise To Chennai Super Kings Fans


Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a lot of things to a lot of people but for the fans of the Chennai Super Kings, he will always be their Thala. Even though ‘Captain Cool’ entered his 40’s earlier this year, the fact that he managed to bring home yet another Indian Premier League trophy only strengthened their belief in him.

Every year the commentators and analysts ask Dhoni if this would be his final season and every year Dhoni says “definitely not”. However, It is a well-known fact that Dhoni’s future as an athlete is becoming more and more unclear as he grows older.

So when Dhoni made an appearance at an event organised by the Chennai franchise, the entire city was watching what he had to say. What he did next melted every single fan’s heart who was present at the venue or watched it on the internet later in the day.

During the event, he spoke about how he has always thought about important things related to his professional career like where would he play his final match as and Indian cricketer. Along the same lines, Dhoni shared his plans about where would he like to play his final IPL match.

“I have always planned my cricket. You know my last game that I played, was in Ranchi. (In) the ODI version, the last home game was at my hometown in Ranchi. So hopefully, my last T20, it will be in Chennai. Whether it’s next year, or in five years’ time, we don’t think about it,” he said as his voice began to quiver and a smile appeared on his face.

It did not take long for his fans to notice the fact that their skipper had gotten emotional and they shared their support, love and affection for whatever the wicket-keeper batter has done for them over all these years.

For a man who is known for never expressing his emotions, the vulnerability in his voice is powerful, shows us how much all of this means to him. He feels just as deeply, if not more. Dear @msdhoni, you might plan your last t20 next yr or 5yrs later but you’ll always be our THALA https://t.co/zgtG6LVCGp

Based on the promise that the CSK skipper made to his fans and followers, it is certain that the man will return in the yellow uniform to try and win his fifth IPL championship which would tie him with Rohit Sharma as the most successful captains in the history of the league.
