Rarely do you see the owner of an IPL team holding intense conversations with the captain of the rival team especially after your team has suffered a humiliating defeat. That’s precisely what Mumbai Indians owner Nita Ambani did with Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni after her side faced a crushing defeat on Saturday. Immediately after the match, Nita and her son, Akash Ambani, were seen holding an intense conversation with Dhoni, triggering hilarious speculations about the future of Rohit Sharma.
Soon after the match, both Nita Ambani and Akash Ambani were seen busy in intense conversation with Dhoni as they exchanged smiles. The photo went viral triggering hilarious speculations as some fans felt that Nita was trying to convince Dhoni to replace Sharma as the captain of Mumbai Indians next year.
The speculation assumed significance in light of Rohit Sharma’s poor run with the bat. The India skipper was out for a duck in Mumbai Indians’ match against CSK.

Saturday’s match played the CSK’s home ground in Chennai. Also present in the stadium to support Dhoni were his wife, Sakshi, and daughter, Ziva.
While CSK have performed exceedingly well in the current season of the IPL, five-time champions Mumbai Indians have struggled to dominate the proceedings.
