Ziva wanted to run freely at Wankhede, discloses MS Dhoni after CSK’s third IPL win

Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) return to Indian Premier League (IPL), in 2018, was nothing short of a fairytale. Led by MS Dhoni, CSK defied all odds and clinched their third championship on Sunday, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in emphatic fashion in the final at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Throughout the tournament, MS Dhoni has remained busy with daughter Ziva. In an Instagram post, Dhoni revealed that Ziva was more interested in running freely at Wankhede Stadium than in the IPL trophy.

In the same post, Dhoni also lauded Shane Watson for his blistering knock. His post read: “Thanks everyone for the support and Mumbai for turning yellow. Shane ‘shocking’ Watson played a shocking innings to get us through. end of a good season. Ziva doesn’t care about the trophy, wants to run on the lawn according to her wordings.”

 

In the post-match ceremony, Ziva, Gracia (Suresh Raina’s daughter) and Hinaya (Harbhajan Singh’s daughter) posed for photographs with their fathers alongside the CSK squad and the IPL trophy.
