IPL 2018: Emotional MS Dhoni Admits Missing Playing in CSK Yellow

One of India’s most loved cricket captains MS Dhoni is rarely known to show emotion on the field of play, but talk of a return for the Chennai Super Kings franchise to the IPL brought out the emotional side in Captain Cool. The CSK franchise are returning to the IPL after two years when it was serving a Supreme Court handed ban for their role in the spot-fixing controversy.

CSK who are former two-time champions (2010 & 2011) had won the IPL title under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

The team returns to the IPL in its 11th season and will once again be captained by Dhoni.

In a video doing the rounds on social media, Dhoni is seen speaking at an event in Chennai where he was unable to control his emotions.

“As I said it was, I knew I would play for the Pune team but the actual moment comes when you start walking with the team-sheet in your hand till that point of time its only practice and everything. It was a very emotional moment…since I have started playing T20 cricket represented the Indian cricket team, Jharkhand team in few tournaments and CSK for eight years, so it was an emotional moment not to see myself in yellow,” Dhoni said at the event.

“But at the same time as professionals, we have to move ahead and also not to prove to anyone but to prove a point to myself that I am making sure whatever I gave in for CSK, I am not leaving any inch that I am not giving for the Pune team,” he added.
