‘We Are So Lucky To Be Playing With Him’, Rashid Khan On Dreamy Welcome For MS Dhoni At Narendra Modi Stadium

In the 59th match of the Indian Premier League 2024, Gujarat Titans beat Chennai Super Kings by 35 runs and kept their hopes alive for playoffs. The match was played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Gujarat. Even if CSK lost the game, the fans cherished MS Dhoni’s batting and they came in huge numbers to support the former Indian captain, despite the match being played at GT’s home ground.

After GT’s game against CSK at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 10th, Rashid Khan was left overwhelmed by the kind of admiration fans had for MS Dhoni. The fans were thrilled to see Dhoni bat in a packed stadium. However, despite Dhoni’s appearance, Gujarat achieved a comfortable 35-run victory against CSK.

In a post-match interview with the broadcasters, Rashid praised the former CSK skipper for his profound impact on both fans and players. The Afghan spinner expressed that players feel privileged to have the opportunity to play alongside Dhoni.

“Once Dhoni comes into the stadium anywhere around the world, it’s a different kind of love. We’re so lucky to be playing with him. We also get every bit of him in those kind of moments,” Rashid said.

Dhoni’s explosive cameo set the Ahmedabad stadium alight, as he smashed 26 runs off a mere 11 balls which featured three sixes and a boundary. Rashid faced the full force of Dhoni’s onslaught, conceding two consecutive sixes during the final over of the chase.

Rashid also commended Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan for their outstanding partnership of 210 runs, describing it as one of the best innings he has seen.

“They were amazing, we love to see them batting, Gill and Sudharsan, two of the best innings we’ve watched. Happy to get a couple of wickets after two wicketless games, I had a back issue and some shoulder problems. Hoping to be 100% fit,” Rashid said.
