In India, cricket is synonymous with religion and few players are worshiped like a god. That was the scene in the match between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans, where a fan barged into the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad to meet Mahendra Singh Dhoni amid Chennai’s chase.

The Gujarat Titans enjoyed a stellar performance as Shubman Gill and B Sai Sudharsan combined for 210 runs, each securing a century and propelling the home side to a formidable 231/3 inside 20 overs. However, fortunes changed for the visiting team as they lost openers Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj Gaikwad during the powerplay. Nevertheless, Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali took the lead and formed a strong partnership of 109 runs. Despite their efforts, wickets continued to fall with the dismissals of Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja. In the slog overs, MS Dhoni stepped in to bat but play halted briefly when a fan entered the field to meet Dhoni during the final over, adding an unexpected twist to the match.

After a pair of sixes over deep mid-wicket and deep square leg against Rashid Khan in the first two balls of the last over of the match, an intruder entered the field to touch Dhoni’s feet. The intruder surprised the 42-year-old by sprinting to the center of the field. But as he got close to the former CSK captain, he was chased away by Dhoni and Chepauk’s security came forward in an attempt to guide him away for an unnecessary stoppage of play. The Twitterverse was clear in spotting this incident and this is how they responded to it.

What a gesture!
