I would love to thank the fans: Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Mahendra Singh Dhoni pointed out that the title win is a result of a team effort. He added that the in-form individuals made the most of their purple patch, with other players chipping in. Dhoni said:
“We shuffled a few players, we used them in different ways. Important was to take responsibility. I felt we had match-winners game after game. People who were in form ensured they were scoring throughout the tournament and others were chipping in.”
Before signing off, Mahendra Singh Dhoni thanked the fans of the Chennai Super Kings franchise, who backed them through thick and thin.
“I would love to thank the fans. We are in Dubai now. Even when we played in South Africa, we always got a good amount of support. Thanks to all of them. If feels like Chepauk, Chennai. Hopefully, we will come back to play the Chennai fans next year,” said MS Dhoni.
