Chennai Super Kings is arguably the most strongly supported franchise in IPL with the local fans going to crazy levels while cheering for the team. CSK as they are fondly called by the fans, returned to the IPL fold this year after serving a two-year suspension.
The franchise could play only one home game in Chennai, as they had to shift to Pune due to the Cauvery water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. This setback didn't affect the performance of the side nor their fans, as CSK arranged some special trains to ensure fans got to see their franchise in action.
Chennai Super Kings defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final to win their 3rd IPL title under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Speaking of MS Dhoni, his wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva were seen cheering for 'Captain Cool' and his team from the stands in all the matches including the final in Mumbai.
Ziva captured the attention of many people as she kept cheering relentlessly for MS Dhoni. Social media was filled with her pictures and videos and she even made her way to the winning team's photographs where MS Dhoni held her, his most valuable trophy above any cricketing trophy that can possibly be.
But it seems Mumbai Indians skipper, Rohit Sharma has managed to persuade her to switch her support towards his team for IPL 2019. Yes, you read that right. Rohit has shared a video on his Twitter account, where Ziva is loudly shouting 'Mumbai Indians'. Rohit tweeted, "We have a new @mipaltan fan in the house yo!! @msdhoni @SaakshiSRawat"
Mumbai Indians were quick to welcome their newest supporter as well.
