CSK fans donate blood on Dhoni's birthday

Chennai: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) may be barred from the IPL for a couple of years for non-cricketing reasons but the fans' love for the franchise and its hugely popular captain M S Dhoni remains uncontested.

Members of the CSK Fan Club conducted a blood donation camp at Government General Hospital here today to coincide with the birthday of Indian ODI and T20 captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Speaking to 'News Today', H Saravanan, a huge fan of the CSK captain, who is now in charge of Rising Pune Super Giants, said the camp was conducted as a "sign of affection" for Dhoni, who turned 35 today.

He said this was a follow-up of an activity during which members of the fan club visited an old-age home in the city and interacted with inmates and also presented welfare measures.

Saravanan is best known for his admiration for Dhoni and his body painting work. He has travelled extensively with the CSK team and been at hand to support them at matches outside Chennai too.
