Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni and his teammates had little time to celebrate the table-topping win at home over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) home on Tuesday. The last champion had to fly in the morning for Jaipur on Wednesday, where he will fight against Rajasthan Royals in his seventh Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 match on Thursday.
Skipper MS Dhoni, who loves his sleep, seems to have struggled due to the lack of it ahead of Chennai Super Kings’ early morning flight to Jaipur from Chennai. Poor over rates during Tuesday’s match against KKR hasn’t helped either. Despite CSK chasing a 109-run target in 17.2 overs, the match finished well after the scheduled time.
Dhoni took to Instagram to post a photograph of himself and his wife Sakshi taking a nap at the Chennai airport while waiting for their flight. Both of them can be seen using a backpack as a makeshift pillow.
“After getting used to IPL timing this is what happens if u have a morning flight,” Dhoni wrote as caption.
