MCA stadium staff did a superb job for CSK
What prompted Dhoni to go ahead with this gesture was the hard work done by the ground-staff to prepare pitches of the MCA stadium on a short notice. CSK had to shift their base to Pune after the unrest in Chennai over the Cauvery water dispute. Out of six matches here, Dhoni's side won five games. The staff was rewarded with Rs. 20,000 each.
Pune turns out to be a lucky charm for CSK
Dhoni is familiar with the Pune pitch since he had represented Rising Pune Supergiant for two seasons. He has enjoyed playing at this venue and selecting Pune as CSK's new home ended up being one of the best decisions for Dhoni and and his boys.
