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.

Chennai Super Kings took to Twitter to share photos of Dhoni's fan's home in Tamil Nadu and wrote, "Super Fan Gopi Krishnan and his family in Arangur, Tamil Nadu call their residence Home of Dhoni Fan and rightly so. Lion faceYellow heart. A super duper tribute that fills our hearts with #yellove. #WhistlePodu #WhistleFromHome."

According to reports, Gopikrishnan works in the Middle East and owing to Covid-19, he has returned home. Reports also said he had splashed around Rs 1.50 lakh to paint the CSK colours.

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.
