He came, He saw, He conquered! MS Dhoni has achieved almost everything particularly on that pristine 22-yard strip where he has dominated the field like none other since making his international debut in the coveted blue jersey for Team India way back in 2004. In the past 14 years, Dhoni has raised the bar every time he has stepped on to the cricket field. The honour of being the only cricket captain in the world to win three ICC trophies – ICC World T20 2007, ICC World Cup 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy speak about the stature the former India captain in the gentlemen’s game.
After entertaining his fans and critics, the 37-year old is all set to make his debut in an altogether new field apart from his first love – Cricket. Yes, you heard it right the veteran warhorse is aiming to start a new beginning on the Kabaddi mat after ruling cricket. Before you start making assumptions, we make it clear that Dhoni was seen in action flexing his toned muscles on the Kabaddi mat for an advertisement shoot in Mumbai.
SEE PICS –
Recently, Dhoni was not a part of the Indian cricket team, who won the three-match T20I series comprehensively against West Indies. The former skipper was given rest to accommodate the young talent in the playing XI. Stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma, however, lamented the absence of veteran wicket-keeper Dhoni was a ‘big miss’ for the team and especially for the younger members of the squad.
A lot of controversy surrounded the decision to exclude Dhoni from the squads for the T20I series against West Indies and Australia. But, chief selector MSK Prasad cleared the air over the same.
