A fan breached the security and invaded the pitch to touch the feet of former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni during the IPL 2024 clash against Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday, May 10.

The incident took place in the final over of the CSK's 232-run chase when Gujarat Titans took Decision Review System (DRS) to review MS Dhoni's lbw. However, the decision was overturned as the ball missed the stump. As Dhoni was making his way back to the striker's end to carry on his batting with only three balls left in the match, a fan suddenly entered the ground and attempted to touch the feet of the ex-CSK skipper. MS Dhoni was hilariously jogging away from the fan while trying to touch his feet.

The spectator was immediately taken away by the bouncers and security. The video of the same went viral on social media.

MS Dhoni walked to bat at No.8 after Shivam Dube's dismissal at 165/6. The former Chennai Super Kings received a loud reception from the Ahmedabad while striding out to bat and join Ravindra Jadeja at the crease. However, Dhoni came out to bat a little as Chennai Super Kings required 67 off 26 balls to chase down a 232-run target.

Though CSK were losing, MS Dhoni didn't disappoint the crowd as he treated them with three sixes and a four while playing an unbeaten innings of 26 off 11 balls at a strike rate of 236.36.

Eventually, Chennai Super Kings were restricted to 196/8 in 20 overs by Gujarat Titans bowlers. Daryll Mitchell (63) and Moeen Ali (53) stepped up for the team when CSK were reeling at 10/3 and formed a 109-run partnership to pull the team from a shambolic situation. However, their efforts went in vain as wickets were falling at regular intervals.

CSK in top 4 on points table despite defeat vs GT

Despite defeat against Gujarat Titans, Chennai Super Kings has remained in top 4 on the points table of the IPL 2024.

CSK's qualification for the knockout stage will be based on the results of their next two games against Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru on May 12 and 18, respectively.

If Chennai Super Kings win their final two games, then the defending champions will officially secure their berth for the playoffs. Their finishing position on the points table will depend on their Net Run Rate (NRR) compared to teams with a similar win-loss record in this season.

CSK are currently fourth spot on the points table with six wins in their 12 points with NRR of +0.491 and accumulated 12 points
