We have seen so many pitch invaders run through to their favourite cricket gods. Some managed to reach their goal, some come so close but fail. You might think that you’ve seen them all until you see what happened during the Chennai Super Kings practice match involving an MS Dhoni fan.
While a massive 12,000 fans turned up in support for the boys in yellow, one of them looked to make his dream come true come what may, literally. His idol was all he wanted to meet and he stopped at nothing. But to his surprise, the former India captain had a rather playful reaction in mind.

The fan invaded the pitch and straight sprinted towards Dhoni to meet him, but Dhoni being the playful master he is, decided to play a little ‘catch me’ game with the fan. In the video uploaded by the official CSK account, we see the cricket great run around away from the fan before security intervened.
Eventually making the fan’s dream came true and captain cool shook his hand.
With 12,000 fans turning up to see their team prep up for the upcoming season, one can only imagine the excitement building up in every cricket enthusiast’s heart for the upcoming tournament. And with light-hearted moments like these, all we can do is smile and adore the amazing, yet sometimes crazy, moments in the world of sports.
CSK face Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers in the season opener on 23 March, Saturday at 8 pm.
