CSK Captain leads his team not only on-field but also off-field which is quite evitable from his recent gesture. MS Dhoni said that he will wait for the entire CSK squad to reach home safely. And then he will board a flight back to his home in Ranchi.
According to a media report, MS Dhoni has informed the management that he wants the foreign players to reach home safely. He will be the last person to leave the team hotel after everyone reaches their home safely.
“Mahi bhai said that he will be the last person to leave the hotel. He wanted foreigners to leave first, then the Indian players. He will be taking the last flight tomorrow when everyone reaches their home safe and secure,” a CSK member was quoted as saying by a leading publication.
“CSK organized a charter flight for its players from Delhi. A ten-seater flight carrying CSK players went to Rajkot & Mumbai in the morning. While the evening charter plane has dropped players from Bangalore & Chennai. MS Dhoni will be the last person to leave the team’s hotel. He will fly on Thursday evening to his home in Ranchi”, the report further added.
Three members of the CSK Camp, bowling Coach Lakshmipathy Balaji, batting coach Mike Hussey, and a member of the support staff contracted COVID-19. Mike Hussey has stayed back in India & will return to Australia after he recovers from COVID-19. The rest of the Australian Contingent have safely departed for Maldives in a charter Plane arranged by the BCCI. The Australians will live in Maldives until the end of the travel ban from India to Australia.
Earlier on Thursday, CSK’s Australian pacer Jason behrendorff shared a picture of himself in a PPE kit & captioned the picture as “traveling in style” in his Instagram story.
Before the 14th edition was postponed, CSK was heading in good form. They were enjoying the second spot on the Points Table by winning five matches out of seven matches they have played.
