New Delhi, April 18 (IANS) India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the most popular player amongst the large crowd gathered here Thursday for the Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The Chennai captain received a loud reception at the time of toss and it got louder whenever he played an attacking shot.
Much to the delight of the fans, Dhoni promoted himself to number four in the batting order after Suresh Raina's dismissal. He opened his account by spanking Irfan Pathan for a boundary over mid-wicket.
Dhoni was dismissed in the 20th over for 44 but he departed not before hitting his trademark helicopter shot.
