MS Dhoni and wife Sakshi hosted the entire Chennai Super Kings team at their Ranchi residence for dinner on Wednesday night.
In the city for the Champions League T20 matches, the two-time Indian Premier League champions were treated to a variety of dishes by Dhoni and his family. The get-together, it is learnt, started at 8 pm and went on for several hours even as patient fans waited with bated breath outside the premises, all for a glimpse of their superstars.
Skipper Dhoni was a gracious host to not just his teammates but was even seen waving to the fans when he came out to escort players to their team bus later.
Ranchi has been in the grip of cricketing fever with Dhoni leading CSK for the first time here. The JSCA International Stadium has seen long queues for tickets as Dhoni and his team play three matches here. With a win already sealed from the first match against Titans (Scorecard), organisers are expecting the frenzy to reach its absolute peak in the days to come.
