IPL 2019: MS Dhoni reacts hilariously to Imran Tahir’s wild celebrations

Posted On / /

Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni rarely displays any over-the-top emotions on and off the field. On the contrary, Imran Tahir, CSK’s leading wicket-taker in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), is mostly high on emotion and passion.

Whenever the Proteas veteran picks up a wicket, he looks unstoppable. Nicknamed “Parasakthi Express”, Tahir sprints from one end of the ground to another with his arms spread wide open.

On Wednesday, Tahir celebrated in his trademark style quite a few times as he claimed a four-wicket haul against Delhi Capitals to help CSK register a comprehensive 80-run win at the Chepauk.

After the match, Dhoni, who is not fully-fit, was asked how he keeps up with Tahir’s wild celebrations and as always, the India veteran came up with a witty reply.

“It’s great fun to watch Tahir celebrate. But we have made it very clear that me and Watson we are never coming to him once he gets a wicket, because more often he runs to the other side,” Dhoni told Harsha Bhogle.

“For me and Watson it’s a bit difficult when you are not 100% fit. Why to go over there and congratulate. The good thing is he finishes his lap and comes back to the same place. So that’s the time we say, ‘yeah, very well done..well bowled’ and we go back to our fielding positions,” Dhoni added.

The match against DC was the final home game for CSK in IPL 2019.

Dhoni scored a quickfire 44 and pulled off lightning fast stumpings to guide the defending champions to victory.
