Probably playing in his last IPL season, MS Dhoni is being celebrated across the country. Especially in CSK’s home ground in Chennai, there is a loud cheer whenever MSD appears on the field. Here, we take a look at the viral video of MS Dhoni walking out to bat at Chepauk as the DJ plays the iconic Rajinikanth song in the background.

Rajinikanth is a cult figure not just in Tamil Nadu but all across the country. The same holds good with MS Dhoni. The common link between both these legends is that their popularity comes mainly from Tamil Nadu. While Rajini is a celebrated Tamil hero, MS Dhoni, playing for CSK, has received a lot of love from the state. Hence, often, fans and stakeholders like to bring some common lines between them.
The Chepauk Stadium DJ is making use of this a lot recently. Every time MSD walks out to bat, he is using some iconic songs of Rajini. This is driving the crowd crazy and the videos regarding the same are also going viral. Here is a look at one of them below:
I've never witnessed anything like this at a cricket stadium, MS Dhoni walking out to bat on his home turf. The crowd even celebrated the previous wicket to just get him to the crease. pic.twitter.com/UOueq8GlSr

CSK has been brilliant this season
Meanwhile, CSK has been really good in IPL 2023. Not many expected them to do well but the team has been consistent and has found a good performer in almost every game. Some of the players such as Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube had not been doing well earlier but are in great form right now.
Similarly, CSK seems to have found a gem in the form of Matheesha Pathirana. Just 20 years old, he has been unstoppable at the death. Not just for this season but the Sri Lankan speedster will go on to play a huge role for the franchise for probably the next decade or so.
