'I don’t think I will go through anything tougher than this', MS Dhoni on the ban
You have been there, standing strong and resilient with your favourite team. Through their ups and their downs. Through their wins and their loss. Through every six they hit and through every wicket they took to defeat their opponents. You have seen it all.
Now it’s time you know their side of the story and live the journey. Talking about his dark phase in Roar of The Lion, MS Dhoni says, “I don’t think I will go through anything tougher than this. But the amount of respect and love we’ve received from the fans, it’s like how they treat God. My association with Chennai Super Kings is like a match made on matrimonial site.”
Upon CSK’s return in 2018, MS Dhoni almost choked at the event while recalling the ban. The team did not know how to react to this never seen before emotional side of Dhoni.
Commenting on the news break about the ban, N Srinivasan says, “I clearly remember I was on a holiday in Kodaikanal, playing Golf when this news came out. Entire nation was talking about it. This story was treated with so much importance as if India was in a war situation.”
Throughout the miniseries, MS Dhoni constantly praises the CSK fans, who were with the team through thick and thin. According to Dhoni their fan following increased in those 2 years of the ban.
CSK’s super fan Suranya says, “MS Dhoni is now one of us, he belongs here. On his comeback, I had tears in my eyes, it was as if I have been separated from someone who was very close to me.”
