Watch: Suresh Raina supports a limping MS Dhoni


NEW DELHI: Following Chennai Super Kings‘ win over Mumbai Indians in their

IPL 2024

match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, a notable moment caught the attention of fans. As the players were heading towards the team bus, former Indian batsman

Suresh Raina

was spotted assisting Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who seemed to be struggling with a limp.
In a video shared by CSK, Raina can be seen offering support to Dhoni as he makes his way onto the team bus after the hard-fought victory on Sunday.

Dhoni came out for the final four balls of CSK’s innings and smacked the first three for sixes to help the team collect 26 runs off the last over from Mumbai Indians captain

His late blitz proved to be the difference as CSK pipped MI by 20 runs to take the third position in the IPL points table.

CSK’s bowling consultant Eric Simmons, after the match, also admitted Dhoni has been struggling with his knee injury but he has battled it bravely while not showing any pain.

“Everyone else is more interested in his injuries than he is. He’s one of the hardest men I’ve ever come across. I don’t even think we know to what extent he may or may not be in pain. He just carries on and does his thing,” he said.
“I’m sure there’s some niggles. He just has that ability to ignore what it is and do what needs to be done. We’re more concerned about his injuries. When I say we, I mean the public (which) is more concerned about his injuries than he is,” Simmons added.
With the win against Mumbai Indians, CSK are at number three in the points tally, with four wins and two losses in six matches.
CSK will next face Lucknow Super Giants on Friday.
