Definitely. It’s a simple reason, it will be unfair to not play in Chennai and say thank you. Mumbai is one place, where as a team and as an individual I have got a lot of love and affection. But it wouldn’t be nice to the CSK fans” said Dhoni at the toss.

“I’ve been to Wankhede to watch his matches. In fact, in his last Test match at Wankhede, I was the ball-boy. I was sitting right in front of his stand,” Solanki recalled in the video.

“One incident happened where he came on the boundary to field and I was sitting there. I was awestruck. He was calling me for water and some energy drink, I was just awestruck standing there. I couldn’t hear a word he was saying because the crowd was so loud.”

“Later, he kept the hand on my shoulder, pulled me closer and told me to get an energy drink for me. That was my moment of the day, that interaction. That was an unforgettable memory for me,” revealed the 22-year-old spinner concluded saying.
