The 12th edition of the IPL is underway and cricket fans around the world are devoted to the splurge-worthy tournament. Screaming their lungs out for their favourite players and supporting them in massive numbers on the grounds is an everyday affair in the IPL.
Among the thousands in attendance last night for the game between rebranded Delhi Capitals and title defenders Chennai Super Kings, was one little bundle of joy who broke all levels of cuteness as she cheered on for her daddy.
In a highlight off the game, Ziva, Dhoni’s daughter was seen cheering for papa with all her energy, as wife Sakshi and surrounding supporters watched on. This gesture by the little girl has taken us by storm. So much so that even the cameras were glued to the child’s face throughout the game.
As chasing runs successfully and MS Dhoni is almost synonymous, papa cool was seen make the chase something he could do in his backyard. With fellow teammate Shane Watson scoring a 44 to help ease out the chase, Dhoni and company looked to seize the night with an impressive overall performance. And to stand behind them in this feat was little Ziva along with mom Sakshi.
The cuteness doesn’t stop here. In another adorable picture shared by Suresh Raina on his social media, Ziva was seen bonding over with Gracia, his daughter. The two were seen playing and cheering on for their daddies. We can only imagine if all the kids got together to support their fathers on the pitch, what a sight that would be.

We also think maybe a big part of the motivation captain cool gets in all his games is his little princess.
Lately, the celebrated Indian cricket legend has been sharing a lot of posts on his social media with Ziva. First seen in a bugs bunny look for her and then enjoying some holiday time on the beach. Last week, the adorable father-daughter duo was seen conversing in six different languages.
With one of the best supporters dedicating all her energy to cheer on, we really think it would be hard to beat the Kings. The men in yellow will next face the pink-power of Rajhastan on March 31.
