Sachin paaji got the biggest ovation whenever he walked out at Chepauk: MS Dhoni

Recently, MS Dhoni talked about the impact of Sachin Tendulkar whenever he came to bat at the Chepauk Stadium. He said that Sachin got the biggest ovation whenever he walked out, even when he played for rival franchise Mumbai Indians.

"I believe Chennai taught me a lot, Tamil Nadu taught me a lot on how to conduct myself, how to appreciate the game. Each and every game we played in Chennai, the fans came and supported us. I think Sachin (Tendulkar) paaji got the biggest ovation whenever he walked out, even when he played for Mumbai Indians," Dhoni said while addressing a gathering at the Champions Call - a celebration event by IPL champions Chennai Super Kings in their home city.

It was in this event that Dhoni also revealed that he would want his last T20 match to be played in Chennai but does not know when that will happen. Dhoni became the oldest captain to win an IPL title after CSK beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs in IPL 2021 final at the Dubai International Stadium.

Later, Dhoni also accompanied Team India as their mentor for the T20 World Cup but his presence could not help India lift the World Cup. Instead, the Men in Blue could not even qualify for the semifinals.
