INDIA'S LIMITED OVERS CAPTAIN, Mahendra Singh Dhoni said it was an emotional moment for him to play in IPL without donning the yellow jersey.
Dhoni told reporters on Sunday,
"It was a very emotional moment...since I have started playing T20 cricket represented the Indian cricket team, Jharkhand team in few tournaments and CSK for eight years, so it was a emotional moment not to see myself in yellow."
Dhoni, who captains the new franchise team Rising Pune Giants was the face of the Chennai Super Kings since 2008 opening season.
MSD further added,
"But at the same time as professionals, we have to move ahead and also not to prove to anyone but to prove a point to myself that I am making sure whatever I gave in for CSK, I am not leaving any inch that I am not giving for the Pune team."
The Pune team have started off their campaign on a positive note defeating the defending champions Mumbai Indians by 9 wickets on Saturday.
