Participating in the current edition of Indian Premier League which is being held in the United Arab Emirates, Dhoni has been spotted chatting with young players from rival teams. Chahal was also one of the players talking to Dhoni after his team lost to Chennai Super Kings at Dubai on Sunday.

It was a crucial match for Dhoni’s team who have had one of their worst IPL performances this year. The three-time champions of the IPL are currently at number eight on the points table and became the first team to be eliminated from IPL 2020. While Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore has displayed an impressive performance this year and are currently on number three on the points table.
