The IPL is popular in India but there are even more fans of MS Dhoni it seems than the league itself as a whopping 1.7 crore people tuned into Jio Cinema to watch the Chennai Super Kings skipper bat against Lucknow Super Giants on Monday.

Dhoni faced the final over of CSK's innings and took smashed a couple of sixes in three balls before getting out to Mark Wood.

That was the time when the Jio app witnessed the highest traffic as fans logged in to watch Thala Dhoni rewind the clock to hit those lusty blows at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk.

Dhoni looked in good nick as he connected the balls with the middle of his bat but unfortunately, couldn't carry on much longer and got out while trying to hit a hat-trick of sixes.

CSK return to winning ways

Chennai Super Kings bounced back from the defeat in their first match of IPL 2023 by registering a 12-run victory over KL Rahul's LSG in a high-scoring thriller at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Chennai fans got the perfect as CSK made a winning return to their home ground after a gap of nearly four years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and previous water-related issues in the city.

Ruturaj Gaikwad (57) and Devon Conway (47) starred with the bat as CSK posted a mammoth 217 for 7 after being asked to bat first.

All-rounder Moeen Ali then starred with the ball, taking four wickets for 26 runs as CSK restricted LSG to 205 for 7 in 20 overs.
