The video of MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma was enough to break the internet ahead of the IPL 2023 match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni are two of the most loved cricketers in India and the two legendary figures command a massive fan base when it comes to the Indian Premier League (IPL). While Dhoni has led Chennai Super Kings to four IPL titles, Rohit holds the record with five trophies. Ahead of the match between the two most successful sides in the competition, the MI Twitter handle posted a video of Rohit and Dhoni practicing side-by-side at the nets. The video quickly went viral and people could not stop praising the two stalwarts for their contribution to the franchises over the years.
Chennai Super Kings will look to get their campaign back on track when they host a resurgent Mumbai Indians. The four-time champions will, however, be wary of MI, which has a superior record at M A Chidambaram stadium here and has claimed victories in the last two matches.

Having endured a defeat at the hands of Punjab Kings in a last-ball thriller on April 30, CSK will hope their fortunes change in the second afternoon match at home.
Only and only love & respect— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 5, 2023
Mumbai Indians, after a sluggish start, have slowly gathered momentum, chasing down tall scores. However, the bowlers' inability to curtail opposition batters would be a cause of worry for skipper Rohit Sharma, who himself has been short of runs.
The return of Jofra Archer augurs well for Mumbai but he would need to pick wickets while the onus would be on the other bowlers to be economical.
Experienced leg-spinner Piyush Chawla would have a big part to play if MI have to keep CSK batters in check. Ishan Kishan hit form in the win over Punjab Kings on Wednesday as did Suryakumar Yadav and that would have pleased the Mumbai team management and the fans.
If the two, apart from Rohit, Cameron Green and Tilak Varma can get going, the Super Kings bowlers would have a huge task on hand. With CSK (11 points) and MI (10) in a tight contest for points and securing spots in the play-offs, Saturday's game promises an interesting battle.
