Two days after the successful clash between the royalties of IPL Chennai Super Kings and the Indians of Mumbai, the CSK squad could be seen enjoying a moment of light while kicking a soccer ball.
On a day when Cristiano Ronaldo launched the world to ecstasy with an impressive bicycle kick, one of his fans, Mahendra Singh Dhoni also showed what he can do with the ball.
The CSK captain, who was recently awarded the Padma Bhushan, could be seen kicking a ball with Tommy Simsek and Russell. An avid football fan, Dhoni is known to be a supporter of Manchester United and loves Ronaldo, and the two even share a shirt number.
He once said: “I am an enthusiastic fan of the EPL (English Premier League) and I just represented a real situation in front of the camera, if I am not busy with cricket, I am always busy with EPL during the weekends. exciting and very close to my heart I was a goalkeeper during my school days Even today, I play football as a warm-up game before the key cricket matches
