The reigning champions’ 6-wicket loss in the group stage match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) would have left many CSK fans dissatisfied. However, there was a bright spot for Chennai supporters early on Thursday when Suresh Raina, the former CSK player, dedicated a Tamil song to MS Dhoni, the former captain.
The Chennai Super Kings is a team that isn’t overly concerned with superstar profiles or skill sets. They concentrate on the correct types of players who can fit into their playing philosophy.
CSK has gone to great lengths to incorporate such a system into their talent scouting and recruitment process. After the spectacular auction of 2008, the team was prepared in this way.
Suresh Raina Has Dedicated A Tamil Song For MS Dhoni
Raina opted to fulfill a Twitter fan’s request while appearing in a cameo for the Star Sports Tamil commentary team. When a colleague pundit asked him to sing the classic ‘Namma Thala Dhoni ku periya whistle adinga’ line from CSK’s Tamilian fan hymn, Mr. IPL didn’t hesitate for a second to give his tribute to his favorite former captain.

For the uninitiated, the song’s lyrics refer to Chennai and Tamil Nadu fans cheering and blowing loud whistles for Thala MS Dhoni, their favorite captain cool. Manoj Maddy, a Twitter user, has altered a snippet of Raina’s song video. Raina also gets full marks for wearing a yellow pocket square on his jacket to symbolize his undying devotion for CSK.
Dhoni’s amazing cameo further down the order seemed to have fueled Raina’s song, as he produced a brilliant cameo of 16 off 10 balls to boost Chennai’s score to 210/7. Unfortunately, as it turned out, Thala and the CSK batters’ efforts were insufficient, as the Lucknow franchise, captained by KL Rahul, successfully chased down the mark.
