On 12 may night at the Wankhede Stadium, Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) campaign in the ongoing 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) came to an end after Mumbai Indians' five-wicket win in the Clasico knocked them out of contention for a playoff spot.

It was their eighth loss in 12 games in IPL 2022, keeping them in ninth place in the points table.

Following the loss, CSK captain MS Dhoni was seen chatting with young Mumbai Indians players, and after the post-match presentation, he was seen signing a bunch of CSK jerseys for the players and support staff of Mumbai Indians, while bowling coach Shane Bond stood beside him to collect them one by one.

On social media, Dhoni's special gestures towards CSK's IPL rival won many hearts

When asked to bat first, Chennai got off to a bad start due to a power outage at Wankhede Stadium, which prevented DRS from being used for the first two overs.

As a result, Devon Conway was unable to review his lbw decision against Mumbai Indians left-arm seamer Daniel Sams after being struck on his pads in only the second bal of the game.

When a good-length delivery from Jasprit Bumrah straightened on him and struck his pads in the next over, neither was Robin Uthappa. At the end of the powerplay, Chennai was down five wickets.

With his unbeaten 33-ball 36, Captain Dhoni fought the Mumbai attack alone, but he received no help from the other end as wickets fell at regular intervals.

CSK were eventually dismissed for 97 in 16 overs, their second lowest total in IPL history

Mumbai responded by losing early wickets and falling 4 wickets behind in the powerplay.

However, Mumbai were able to chase down the total in 14.5 overs thanks to Tilak Varma's patient 32-ball 34 and Tim David's cameo knock of seven-ball 16.
