RR’s Yashasvi Jaiswal Greeting CSK’s Dhoni With Folded Hands is winning the internet for the right reason


Guwahati: Veteran cricketer and Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni enjoys a massive fan following all over the globe and his fans usually leave no stones unturned to get one glimpse of the wicket-keeper batsman in person.

Several fans in the past have breached security, sprinted to the pitch just to express their gratitude towards the man, and in some instances even touched the cricketer’s feet.

On Tuesday, Chennai Super Kings came out for their second encounter of the IPL 2020 against the Rajasthan Royals who were set to play their maiden match of the season.

18-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal, who was handed out a debut for his side Rajasthan Royals after his heroics in the U-19 World Cup this year, got the perfect opportunity to meet the legend in person after Dhoni won the toss and asked RR to bat first.

As Dhoni was seen greeting his opponents, fist-bumping them (pandemic effect), Jaiswal smiled and gestured MS with folded hands.

The photo of Jaiswal’s “fanboy” moment instantly went viral on Twitter as fans called it a respectful gesture towards a 39-year-old Indian cricketer.
