It would the end of an era dedicated to legendary Mahindra Sindh Dhoni, who could be playing his last ever professional game.

The crush as well as emotional game for Indian spectators will be played between defending champions Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The winner would proceed to the Indian Premier League (IPL) knockouts with Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Another emotional sentiment for cricket fans around the world that this would be the last time Virat Kohli and great MS Dhoni will share the cricket field.

Virat Kohli said that he is looking forward to playing alongside MS Dhoni on Saturday.

The prolific batter said that it could also be the last time he gets to play with Dhoni after having shared the dressing room several times over the last 16 years.

Kohli and Dhoni last played international cricket together in the 2019 World Cup semi-final against Kane Williamson’s New Zealand at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

The 35-year-old Kohli has always spoken highly of Dhoni and the duo have shared a healthy camaraderie.

“For fans to see him (Dhoni) play in any stadium in India is a big thing. Me & him playing again, maybe for the last time, you never know – that is a special thing,” Kohli said on Jio Cinema.

“We have had some great memories, some great partnerships for India, it’s a great occasion for fans to see us together,” Kohli added.

Kohli is currently the Orange Cap holder, having scored 661 runs from 13 games at an average of 66.10 striking at 155.16 with 5 fifties and a hundred.

Dhoni, on the other hand, rolled back years with his iconic long hair look. Despite not playing for an entire year, he still looked threatening with bat having scored 413 runs at an average of 82.60 striking at 174.26.
