MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings made it to their 8th Indian Premier League final on Saturday, crushing Delhi Capitals by 6 wickets and an over to spare in Qualifier 2 in Vizag.
With a final berth at stake, the match between Delhi Capitals was also considered to be a contest between master and apprenticeMS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant.
On Saturday, the Delhi Capitals had lost the Qualifier 2 to Chennai, but after the match, Rishabh Pant was seen taking some tips from MS Dhoni.
Shortly after the one-sided contest, Pant was seen interacting with MS Dhoni’s daughter, Ziva Dhoni. In a video posted on Ziva Dhoni’s official Instagram account, the 4-year-old was seen teaching Rishabh Pant Hindi vowels. And here too, Rishabh Pant was being a good student to the teacher.

Rishabh Pant is considered to be the next big finisher after MS Dhoni but the young cricketer is still in the nascent stages of his careers. Pant has been idolizing MS Dhoni and has revealed he has learned a lot while watching him bat and sharing the crease with the senior wicketkeeper-batsman.
“Whenever I needed any support from Mahi bhai, I used to ask him. From my IPL contract to my wicket-keeping, he’s advised me on everything,” Rishabh Pant had said in the past.
Rishabh Pant had hit 25-ball 38 in the IPL 2019 Qualifier 2 where Delhi Capitals failed to make it to their first IPL final ever.
The IPL 2019 final will be contested between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on Sunday in Hyderabad.
