The 2024 season of the Indian Premier League has reached its playoffs stage, and on May 21, Tuesday, fans got their first finalists of the tournament, Kolkata Knight Riders. Although the tournament is hosted in India, it has developed a massive fan following worldwide. Be it the citizens of other countries or Indians residing in other parts of the world, IPL is there everywhere. Each franchise or cricketer participating in the tournament has garnered fans, but one name that remains an absolute fan favourite is former CSK captain MS Dhoni and a video doing rounds on social media is its solid testament. 

An Indian student studying at one of the universities in the USA proudly showcased his love for the CSK veteran MS Dhoni and the franchise. In a video doing rounds on social media, a student was seen flaunting MS Dhoni’s CSK jersey during his graduation ceremony. The student unfurled Dhoni’s jersey before receiving his degree during the convocation. Notably, this isn’t the first time a student has shown his love for any cricketer. 

A few days ago, one student flaunted Rohit Sharma’s jersey while another did the same for Virat Kohli during his graduation day. CSK crashed out of the tournament after RCB defeated them by 27 runs in their respective last league stage games of the season. 

MS Dhoni reveals reason behind preferring Instagram over X (formerly Twitter) 

Former CSK captain MS Dhoni revealed why he prefers Instagram over X, earlier known as Twitter. At a CSK promotional event, Dhoni said that he likes Instagram because it allows him to share photos and videos and then disengage. He said, "I prefer Instagram over Twitter. I believe that nothing good has happened over Twitter, especially in India. There is always a controversy. Somebody will write something, and it turns into a controversy.” 

Dhoni added, “It used to be 140 characters. You cannot elaborate. Imagine me putting something over there, and then it is left up to the people to read it. And they just interpret what they want to interpret.”
