Captain 'Cool' played a blinder of an innings against the Kings XI Punjab on Sunday (April 15) at Mohali. Unfortunately, CSK fell short by just 4 runs in spite of MS Dhoni's heroics. However, his better half, Sakshi Dhoni was present in the stands to cheer him on the entire time he was at the crease.

Sakshi has been a regular at the stadiums whenever her husband's been in action, be it for the CSK or India. She was also present a few days back at CSK's match against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai, where her daughter, Ziva Dhoni was clicked in an adorable snap with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
