CSK vs MI IPL 2024: Following their victory against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium, Suresh Raina, the former Indian cricketer, was seen assisting MS Dhoni, who seemed to be limping, back to the team bus. On Sunday, CSK posted a video in which Raina was seen giving MSD his hand on the stairs as the latter limped while boarding the team bus. 

The defending champions emerged victorious by 20 runs in the match. During the match, with four balls to go, Dhoni arrived at the crease and hit three consecutive sixes off Hardik and then a couple to score 20 off 4 balls, with a strike rate of 500.00, setting Mumbai a target of 207.

Raina is fifth on the list with 5528 runs in the 205 matches he has played during his IPL career. He has scored runs at an average of 32.51 and at a strike rate of 136.73, with the best score of 100*.

Meanwhile, Dhoni was praised by Mahindra & Mahindra Chairman and CEO Anand Mahindra for his blistering innings against Mumbai Indians. In a post on X, Mahindra wrote: “Show me one sportsperson who thrives more than this man—on unrealistic expectations & pressure… It only seems to add fuel to his fire. Today, I’m simply grateful that my name is Mahi-ndra…."

Mahi has been an IPL legend of sorts, playing for the CSK since the inaugural season and leading the side to five IPL trophies before finally handing over the captaincy to Ruturaj Gaikwad this year.
