Chennai, October 14: A hardcore fan of former India skipper M.S.Dhoni in Tamil Nadu's Cuddalore district has painted his house in yellow -- the Chennai Super Kings colour in the Indian Premier League.

Not only the outer walls are painted in yellow but they also sport the CSK logo "the lion", the tagline "whistle podu" and also a portrait of Dhoni.

Gopikrishnan, the fan, has also loudly proclaimed that he is an ardent Dhoni fan by painting in bold letters '#HOME OF DHONI FAN' above the entrance of the house. MS Dhoni and Co Are Back! CSK Fans Hopeful of Playoffs Qualification After 20-Run Win Against SRH in IPL 2020.

Chennai Super Kings, the three-time IPL champions, have however not been able to play as per expectations in the ongoing 13th edition of the tournament being staged in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to Covid-19 pandemic. Out of the eight matches they have played so far, the Men in Yellow have registered wins in only three and are currently placed at the sixth spot in the points table.

CSK, who defeated SunRisers Hyderabad on Tuesday night in Dubai, will next face Delhi Capitals on Saturday.
