The fervor for former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni among supporters is uncontrollable. Even after quitting cricket for the international circuit, his following is unrivaled. Here is evidence that "Thala" supporters will go above and beyond out of pure love. An odd statement grabbed everyone's attention during Sunday's live broadcast of the Chennai Super Kings' IPL match versus Sunrisers Hyderabad at MA Chidambaram Stadium. The reason behind a cricket player's fan breaking up with his fiancée is entirely related to MS Dhoni.

Thala for a reason!

Many were both shocked and surprised by the fan's claim that, following Gaikwad's dismissal, MS Dhoni hit the turf. The camera moved to the fan holding a banner as soon as he entered. "Broke up with my GF because her name does not have seven letters," the poster said. He brought up Dhoni's number seven shirt, citing it as justification for ending things with his fiancée. The fan's banner sparked a wave of responses from internet users. One fan said, "Hey. A distinct fan following exists for MSD. Someone else added, "Dhoni and his fans are the coolest." "Dhoni and his fans are the coolest," someone wrote in response to the post.

7 letters = Message set loud and clear

The new popular post is related to the 'Thala for a reason' movement that gained traction online the previous year in the wake of India's 2023 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Final defeat against Australia. Fans are starting to associate different meanings with the number 7.

In addition to the enthusiasts, a number of brands have joined the trend by getting on board. Blinkit has already shared a post in order to attain the seven-count. "Blinkit has seven letters, the meaning is plain," it said. Thala has a purpose.

Embracing the trend, Swiggy concentrated on utilizing various puns related to food. Rather than using the word "thala," the company said, "Thali for a cause." This season, MS Dhoni has played nine innings and amassed 96 runs at a strike rate of 259.46.
