In a recent IPL 2023 match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC), there was confusion surrounding the place of Shivam Dube in the CSK playing XI. During the toss, CSK captain MS Dhoni stated that Ambati Rayudu would replace Dube in the team.
On the team sheet, Dube’s name was listed at No. 5 along with Rayudu. Dube ultimately batted and top-scored for CSK with 25 runs off 12 balls, including three sixes.
Despite the initial confusion, CSK managed to secure a 27-run win over DC in the match. The victory was CSK’s seventh win in 12 matches played so far in IPL 2023, placing them at the No. 2 position in the points table with 15 points. If they win even one of their remaining two matches, they will qualify for the knockout stage.
Following the mix-up at the toss, fans took to social media to create memes about the incident. CSK’s official Twitter handle also shared two pictures, one of Dhoni practicing with Dube and the other of Dhoni at the toss without Dube, to hilariously troll their own captain.
The tweet quickly went viral on the internet.
