Former Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni and his teammates took sometime off from their training session as they went out to watch a movie at Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai on Saturday, March 23.

The defending champions kicked off their IPL 2024 campaign with a six-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bangalore. With a target of 174, Chennai Super Kings chased it down with 1.2 overs, thanks to an unbeaten 66-run partnership between Shubham Dubey (34*) and Ravindra Jadeja (25*) for the fifth wicket.

CSK were in a little trouble when they required 46 off 30 balls to win. Shubham Dubey shifted his gears and smashed a six and a four off Alzarri Joseph in the penultimate over to take the team past the finishing line.

A day after the victory, MS Dhoni and his few CSK teammates decided to take time off from cricket and watched a movie at Sathyam Cinemas. The fans were waiting outside the theatre to get the glimpse of the players, especially MS Dhoni and chanted loudly for Thala.

MS Dhoni renounced his captaincy duties and handed it over Ruturaj Gaikwad ahead of IPL 2024 opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Dhoni led CSK to record-equalling fifth IPL triumph by defeating Gujarat Titans in the final, making him the joint-most successful captain alongside former MI captain Rohit Sharma in the history of IPL.

Ruturaj Gaikwad revealed that the change in captaincy was hinted by MS Dhoni in the last IPL season and asked him to do ready take up the leadership duties. Gaikwad had a great start as he earned first win on his captaincy debut.

The Pune-born cricketer will lead Chennai Super Kings in the next match against Gujarat Titans at M Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk on March 26, Tuesday.
