The bond between Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni and star pacer Deepak Chahar is one of the favorite visuals to see for cricket fans. The duo had been seen in a couple of interesting reactions in the past which happened to go viral over social media. They also made it to the headlines of social media among cricket fans for a recent interaction.
It all happened after CSK’s historic title triumph in the IPL 2023 final against Gujarat Titans. In the post-match scenes, Deepak Chahar came to MS Dhoni for an autograph but the latter denied it initially as he looked annoyed and unhappy with the dropped catch of star GT opener Shubman Gill by Deepak Chahar.
Dhoni was visibly talking about that moment with the IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla, who later laughingly insisted Dhoni give an autograph. Although Dhoni gave his autograph on Chahar’s jersey. The video of this interesting moment between the star CSK duo started making rounds on the micro-blogging site Twitter as soon as it was shared by a user.

Other than him, the senior opener Wriddhiman Saha also scored a crucial half-century and contributed 54 runs with five fours and a six on his credit.
