Former cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a massive fan following despite his retirement from the International cricket tournaments. The unfathomable love for Dhoni comes into display during Chennai Super Kings (CSK) matches in the ongoing Indian Premiere League tournament (IPL 2024).

In a recent incident, reflecting Dhoni’s craze among his fans, a placard garnered attention during the CSK vs SRH match on Sunday. In the placard, the Dhoni fan claimed that he broke up with his girlfriend because her name doesn’t have seven letters.

The CSK match against SRH marked a rebound of Dhoni’s team which were struggling amid repeated defeat in the game. After Ruturaj Gaikwad’s wicket loss, Mahendra Singh Dhoni entered the ground for his batting. Upon his entry, the camera focused towards the fan holding the placard.  

The X post, shared by a social media user @mufaddal_vohra garnered hilarous response with many hailing ‘Thala supremacy’.

“He should leave the country due to 7 letters name issue,” commented an X user on the post.

“Thala didn’t score century in overseas, even though it had 7 letters,” wrote another X user.

‘Thala for a reason’

Many social media users flooded the comment box with ‘Thala for reason’ a phrase widely used by MSD fanbase. The phrase becomes a major fuel for meme trend every now and then. The ‘Thala for a reason’ trend is a testimony of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s charm and his iconic jersey number 7. Fans often associate MS Dhoni’s number 7 jersey with most whimsical and random aspects of life.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s affection for number 7 is not just because of his luck, but a reflection of his birthdate, July 7. He has clarified multiple times that the number is important for him not because of any superstition related to luck.

Chennai Super Kings won the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) which was their 50th win at Chepauk. The match also continued SRH’s trend of losing all its games against CSK in Chennai.
