South African spinner and CSK star bowler Imran Tahir, has hailed his Chennai Super Kings captain and teammate, MS Dhoni for his generosity off the field. MS Dhoni was seen enjoying a sprint race with his teammate Shane Watson and Imran Tahir’s sons after CSK had defeated KXIP in a group match of IPL 2019.
Dhoni joined the star duos sons in the sprint and later on carried Imran Tahir’s son to the finish line leaving junior Watson behind. Imran has described that moment as a ‘special’ moment for his son and said that he would forever be grateful to MS Dhoni for displaying this act of kindness.
MS Dhoni has been leading the Chennai-based franchise from the inception of the tournament in 2008 and has won 3 titles with them so far.
Imran Tahir told Rupha Ramani in a live YouTube chat for Chennai Super Kings that his son Gibran will relish the time he spent with MS Dhoni after growing up. CSK anchor showed Imran a photo of MS Dhoni playing with Tahir’s son Gibran from the last IPL season.
“It was a very special moment for my son. Very grateful to Mahi Bhai. You know what a wonderful guy he is and what a wonderful captain he is. He is also a great human being. That inspires me more about him and his family,” Imran Tahir said in the YouTube chat.
