There is absolutely no denying the fact that the fans treat the game of cricket like religion in this country. But K Vinod has taken his devotion to the game to a whole new level. A devoted fan of IPL team Chennai Super Kings went to the extent to designing his wedding card in the theme colours of that of the Chennai-based franchise. He also uniquely designed the wedding card in such a way that it looked like a match ticket.
The official handle of CSK uploaded the image on social media, writing:
“Wishing the Super fan in Vinod Buddy a very happy married life ahead! The invite is a special #Yellove from the super fan!”

Vinod later revealed what made him come up with the unique idea for something as important as his wedding.
“Being a super fan of CSK and skipper MS Dhoni, I wanted to come up with something unique as my wedding invite,” Vinod was quoted as saying by CSK website.
Vinod also revealed that he was presented with a bat signed by skipper Dhoni during the 2015 edition of the league.
“CSK officials gave me a surprise in 2015 , at the conclusion of our last home game, when my name was announced and I was presented with an autographed bat by Dhoni,” he revealed.
Chennai Super Kings are one of the most popular teams in the IPL. Earlier this year, they returned to the league after serving a two year ban. And their comeback season culminated in a fairytale manner.
Led by the talismanic MS Dhoni, the Super Kings defied all the expectations, blowing away opposition to lift the title. It was their third title, making them the most successful team along with Mumbai Indians in the history of the Indian Premier League.
