New Delhi, Oct 1: Forget the Mohawk hairdo, let us welcome MS Dhoni's new look, that too in a "lungi"!
Yes, Dhoni was seen at Ranchi and New Delhi airports sporting a blue coloured "lungi". While the skipper was spotted in this attire and CSK team T-shirt along with his wife Sakshi, the rest of the Super Kings were in fancy pyjamas.
According to CSK's official Facebook page, the players wore fancy pants for a "cause". It was "Fancy Pants Day" for CSK, according to their FB page. The page, however, did not mention at which airport the pictures were taken.
"Super Kings... Check out our lions in fancy pants for a good cause," was posted on the FB page with photos of players in one of the airports. R Ashwin, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Michael Hussey, Albie Morkel and other players were seen in fancy pants.
"For all who wanted to know what was the reason for our funny pants, it was team event and we have collected some money from each player and the amount is being matched by our management, and the collected amount, is going to be given for a Charity in Chennai," tweeted CSK manager Russell Radhakrishnan.
"Thanks to all our players for their effort, which is for a good cause," he wrote in another tweet.
CSK, currently unbeaten in Champions League Twenty20, will face Trinidad and Tobago in Delhi tomorrow. They have already qualified for the semi-final. They won all three league matches in Ranchi. The team travelled from Ranchi to Delhi on Sunday (September 29).
