The Indian Premier League is undergoing its 16th edition in full swing as all the franchises have their own fan following, however, the one that Chennai Super Kings have is unmatchable. The sight of yellow waves at every CSK match in the season is proof of the passion that the franchise fans carry for their team. A recent incident that occurred during CSK's clash against Delhi Capitals at the former’s home serves as proof.
The overfilled metros and jam-packed stadiums speak for how loyal the fans have been to their favourite IPL team, CSK. Not only this, but the enthusiasm the Yellow Army has been carrying throughout the season is something one cannot miss. There is simply no parallel to the thunderous chants in all the CSK matches in stadiums across the country.
A recent crazy mass incident took place at the CSK vs DC clash, where a fan’s smartwatch decided to rebel against the decibel norms showing bewildering ‘sound levels’ and sending even the CSK fans into a frenzy. In a clip going viral on social media, a fan’s smartwatch displayed a warning sign showcasing the sound levels hitting 100 dB. The warning read, “Loud environment. Sound levels hit 100 dB. Even a few minutes at this level can cause temporary hearing loss.” It speaks for the craze that cricket lovers have for the four-time IPL winners.

The madness gets a notch higher when the CSK skipper comes into bat. Earlier this season, former Australian cricketer and commentator Aaron Finch himself said that if you are a true cricket fan, you must go and see Dhoni entering the field at least once. Not only this but CSK all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has also acknowledged the unique devotion fans have for the man in the 7-number jersey.
Jadeja said, "When I bat at 7, the crowd is disappointed and chants for Mahi bhai. Imagine if I bat higher; they will just wait for me to get out." Chennai Super Kings are currently in the second spot on points table with 15 points from 12 matches in this season. They will lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders on May 14, Sunday, at the Chepauk Stadium.
