IPL 2024: Virat Kohli shows sweet gesture, enters CSK dressing room to meet MS Dhoni

Was the IPL 2024 game against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) MS Dhoni’s last match? Fans hope not. The game had a dramatic moment when Dhoni hit a six on the first ball of the final over. But RCB’s Yash Dayal dismissed Dhoni on the second delivery, turning the match in his team’s favor.

A video on social media shows Dhoni skipping the handshake with RCB players and heading to the dressing room. Despite not being fully fit this season, Dhoni was at the front of the queue with his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammates, waiting for RCB to finish celebrating. After a short wait, he left.


After the post-match walk, RCB’s Virat Kohli asked the CSK management about Dhoni. In a surprising move, Kohli entered the CSK dressing room to meet him.

It’s unclear if Dhoni eventually shook hands with the RCB players, but in that moment, he chose to return to the dressing room rather than wait for the opponents.
