"No Dhoni No Cricket"- CSK fan's viral poster during an IPL game goes viral on internet
MS Dhoni is probably the most iconic cricketer that India has produced in the last two decades or so. There are a number of Indian players with most runs and centuries than him but he has got the most devoted fanbase as compared to anyone in the cricket world.
Despite announcing his international retirement in 2020, a huge number of fans love and support him across the world. On the other hand, his achievements in the Indian Premier League is another major reasons for his legacy in this game.
Dhoni has been the only captain to lead an IPL team since its inception in 2008 and has led the Chennai Super Kings to four IPL titles. And he is still going strong in the tournament. As we can see in the ongoing tournament, whether he is playing in Lucknow or Chennai, the fans are gathering in huge numbers to watch their World Cup-winning captain.
Meanwhile, Dhoni's devoted fanbase has once again caught the attention of the world, as one of his fans was spotted holding a special placard during an CSK game in the ongoing tournament. That fan was spotted with a poster which read, "Haven’t watched international cricket since the 2019 World Cup semi-final. No Dhoni No Cricket."

Dhoni played his last international game in the 2019 ODI World Cup, when India lost to New Zealand in the semi-final of the tournament. Thus, the picture of that poster became viral quickly. CSK didn't have a great outing in the IPL 2022 and they finished 9th on the points table.
But this season, they have showed a great performance. Despite losing the opening encounter to the defending champion Gujarat Titans, CSK is currently at the top of the table with five wins out of seven games. They have won their last three games on the trot and will face Rajasthan Royals on April 27 in their next game.
