How did MS Dhoni prank the Chennai crowd?

In the 17th over of CSK’s run-chase, Jadeja played a prank on the crowd as he started to walk out after Vaibhav Arora dismissed Shivam Dube. The crowd, expecting Dhoni to come out, was taken by surprise. However, the surprise turned into laughter when Jadeja swiftly returned to the dugout, revealing that he was just pretending to go out to bat.

This prank was not just for laughs; it also highlighted MS Dhoni’s understanding of the crowd’s expectations. He knew that the fans at Chepauk were eagerly waiting to see him bat. By orchestrating this prank, Dhoni ensured that the crowd got their money’s worth.

Jadeja, who won the Player of the Match award for his stunning bowling and fielding against KKR, echoed this sentiment. He said, “Wo sirf apna ek jhalak dikhaya to unke lie ticket ka paisa vassool ho jaega (If the crowd gets a glimpse of Dhoni, they will get their money’s worth)”.
