MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi displayed a hundred of stories through her face on Tuesday night as Chennai Super Kings took on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first Qualifier at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. But the most precious moment was the loud cheer at the end when Faf du Plessis steered CSK into their seventh Indian Premier League (IPL) final with a 2-wicket win over SRH.
As Faf du Plessis lofted Bhuvneshwar Kumar straight over his head for the winning runs, the entire CSK stand erupted with joy. Amidst the cheering faces and smiling eyes, Sakshi’s lips curled from ear to ear. The chants of ‘CSK! CSK!’ reverberated around the stadium, as Sakshi stood beaming from the stands with her friends.
