This reunion was not just a trip down memory lane for Dhoni, but also a reminder of one of the most iconic moments in Indian cricket history. It was under Dhoni’s captaincy that India lifted the World Cup in 2011 after 28 years. The winning six that Dhoni hit in the final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is etched in the memory of every cricket fan.

The reunion took place ahead of the IPL match between MI and CSK, adding to the excitement of the upcoming clash. MS Dhoni, who is now a key player for CSK, was in Mumbai for this high-octane match.

The match between MI and CSK, often referred to as ‘El Clasico’ of the IPL, is one of the biggest rivalries in the tournament. Both teams have had contrasting seasons so far, with MI bouncing back after losing their first three games and CSK sitting comfortably in third place after five games.
