Even the politicians are joining in the IPL craze. Karunanidhi, Chief Minster of Tamil Nadu, joins thousands of Chennai cricket fans in his support for Chennai Super Kings. He appended his name to a “wish-petition”, urging hosts Chennai Super Kings to win both their T20 Indian Premier League outings to be played here Wednesday and Saturday.
Chennaionline.com, one of the leading city portals, had organized this campaign.The petition was ceremoniously handed over to CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni by officials from India Cements, the company that owns the team.
Both Karunanidhi and Tamil Nadu Governor S. S. Barnala are expected to be present for today's match at Chennai.
