Chennai Super Kings Mahendra Singh Dhoni was seen talking to Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul after the match against Kings XI Punjab. The veteran cricketer has recently retired from international cricket.
He has been sharing his cricket knowledge to young budding cricketers. However, this is not the first instance in the ongoing IPL. Every time any youngster approaches him, Dhoni is more than happy to assist them.
The 39-year old has amassed lots of cricketing knowledge during his playing time. In fact, he is considered one of the best cricketing brains ever. He reads a cricket game better than almost anybody in contemporary cricket. This trait has helped him to become the most successful Indian captain ever.
Both Rahul and Mayank are important players in Indian team. While Mayank has solidified his position as opener in test team, Rahul has been the best batsman for India in the past 18 months. His versatility to play in multiple positions helped India enormously.
Dhoni passing down certain tips on cricket, will keep both the cricketers in good stead. Here is a short clip of Dhoni interacting with Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.

Chennai Super Kings Thump KXIP For 10 Wicket Victory
CSK came roaring back to winning ways after their loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday. The men in yellow were in complete command as they won their match comfortably against Punjab.
Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis stole the show as they chased down target of 179 with ease. It is also a very good sign for Chennai as Watson was struggling for form prior to this game. This is the sort of match that is expected from fans of Chennai Super Kings.
A strong reply to the loss of SRH has reminded how strong Chennai can be on their day. Remaining teams should be aware that CSK could simply breeze past them if they give Dhoni’s men any chance.
On the other hand, Punjab has now lost three games in a row. They will need to turn the tide quickly as they lost their way similarly in 2019. The loss doesn’t go well with the team as they were thoroughly outplayed on the night. The win helped Chennai climb to sixth position with four points.
The season is still early and CSK have plenty of matches to enter the top half. If they continue this form, it is not impossible to reach top 2 as well.
