People frequently mistake Dhoni for being a man with limited facial expressions because of his normally restrained demeanour on the pitch. We typically see him verbally expressing his ideas and feelings during the post-match presentations in IPL games. But the IPL 2023 championship game revealed a surprise—a distinct side of Dhoni that everyone noticed. An incredible event occurred as he triumphantly lifted Ravindra Jadeja after scoring the game-winning runs for the Chennai Super Kings against the Gujarat Titans. Dhoni was struck with emotion and, in a striking break from his typical coolness, tears welled up in his eyes. It’s true what you just read! The unbreakable guy sobbed with excitement, making the scene a touching spectacle.

Fans were in awe of this emotional rollercoaster and wondered what great significance this triumph held for Thala. Dhoni seemed defeated just before Jadeja’s bravery, as if the weight of the world were weighing heavily on his face. However, the metamorphosis was nothing short of miraculous as Jadeja changed the course of events. The intensity of Dhoni’s bond with Jadeja was evident in the way his face lighted up like a thousand rockets and the joyous tears that readily streamed from his eyes. The tremendous effect this victorious moment had on their adored skipper left fans gasping for air.

“You do experience emotions simply because this is the final chapter of my career. The first time that happened, I was playing in the first game, and while I was walking around, the entire stadium was chanting my name. My eyes started to water, and I stood there in the dugout for a while. I took my time before realising that I should enjoy it. In Chennai, the same thing took place. When Harsha Bhogle questioned Dhoni about his emotional state following his final game there, Dhoni responded, “It will be fantastic to come back and play whatever I can.
