‘Met Mahi bhai after so long…’: Jasprit Bumrah turns fanboy, heads to CSK dugout to meet MS Dhoni

Despite Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai Indians lost the Indian Premier League match with Ruturaj Gaikwad-led Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs at Wankhede on 14 April, it didn’t stop Jasprit Bumrah from heading to the CSK dugout to meet his former India captain MS Dhoni.

Bumrah, who produced figures of 0/27 from 4 overs, couldn’t help himself and turned into a fan boy on catching up with Mahendra Singh Dhoni after the IPL match.

Bumrah was seen posing with former Indian skipper after a member of the CSK unit clicked a picture of the two together. The Indian pacer even uploaded the picture on his Instagram later, “Met Mahi bhai after so long. Felt good to catch up.”

Here’s Instagram post by Bumrah: 

Though being the key bowler for MI, Bumrah didn’t get a chance to bowl to Dhoni, with the former CSK skipper arrived at the last over and Hardik Pandya took over the bowling charge.

It is to be remembered that during the 2016 tour of Australia, Bumrah played his first international game for India. But, in the meantime Bumrah had dismissed Dhoni one-on-one three times across 15 IPL matches.
