It also finished Kings XI Punjab’s hopes to go through to the next stages despite having a stellar start to their campaign this season.

While Chennai did have the option to accelerate and try and knock Sunrisers from the top of the table, given the equations of the IPL play-offs, there is nothing at stake except pride in finishing either first or second in the group stages.

Nonetheless, the win did bring a smile to the faces of the CSK fans across the country and the skipper decided to spend some fun time with his child Ziva who was present at the Maharashtra Cricket Association stadium.

In a video uploaded by Chennai Super Kings, Dhoni could be seen playing with Ziva who seemed extremely fascinated to take the cap off her father’s head and try and place it back.

Well, taking it off was easy but she simply couldn’t put it back in its place with Dhoni fixing it on his own a couple of moments later.
