They say age is just a number and former India captain MS Dhoni has proved it is right, time and again. Dhoni, who is not a part of the Indian cricket team currently, was spotted working out. In a video posted by a Dhoni fan account, the 38-year-old can be seen doing chin-ups. Not only does that show that he still has the power in those muscles but it could well be the reason behind Dhoni’s humungous sixes.
Here is the video that has surfaced on the internet:
Not too long ago, another video featuring Dhoni went viral on social media. The former India captain was washing his car – The Jonga SUV – assisted by his daughter Ziva. He had also turned up to the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi before that and witnessed first hand India routing South Africa 3-0 in Tests. He also was clicked talking to debutant Shahbaz Nadeem.
Dhoni was last seen playing in ICC Cricket World Cup semi-finals, where India suffered a heartbreaking loss to New Zealand. Since then, the wicketkeeper barsman has taken a break from international cricket with the permission of the BCCI. The former captain joined his para-military regiment and where he spent 15 days in Kashmir serving the army like a commoner.
With talks surrounding Dhoni’s retirement, India coach Ravi Shastri broke his silence and commented on the issue. In an interview to TOI, Shastri said that half the people talking about Dhoni and his future cannot even tie their shoelaces. Reminding fans of his illustrious career, Shastri understands Dhoni is nearing the end of his career, but bringing it up repeatedly does no one any good.
