MS Dhoni and his Chennai Super Kings teammates are currently in Mumbai for their next game in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024. The reigning champions will lock horns against Mumbai Indians in their next game. The match is scheduled to take place at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday (April 13).

And ahead of the game, MS Dhoni had a special reunion with the coveted World Cup trophy at the Wankhede Stadium. The former India skipper had led India to their second ODI World Cup title in 2011 at the Wankhede Stadium. It was India's first World Cup triumph in ODIs since 1983. 

The Men in Blue have not won the trophy since 2011. In 2023, they qualified for the final under Rohit Sharma's captaincy but ended up losing the title decider against Australia. The Indian cricket team's official Instagram page posted a beautiful photo of MS Dhoni touching the World Cup with the caption: "MS Dhoni 🤝 World Cup Trophy. Made for each other❤️"

 CSK and MI eye crucial win:

Talking about IPL 2024, both CSK and MI will be eyeing a crucial win when they take on each other in the mouth-watering clash. CSK have won three of their first five games and are currently in the third spot in the points table.

They started their season with wins over Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Gujarat Titans before suffering losses against Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side returned to winning ways with a win over Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game. CSK are yet to win a game away from home this season and will be looking to break the trend on Sunday.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have won two of their first five games. Under new captain Hardik Pandya, the five-time IPL champions began their season with three losses in a row.

However, they have bounced back in style by registering two thumping wins in their last two home games. With the momentum on their side, MI will be eyeing another win as they look to bolster their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.
