Despite stepping aside as the captain of the Rising Pune Supergiants franchisee, MS Dhoni’s stocks have only risen. Even if the former Indian captain is travelling in a train after 13-long years, it makes news, that is the star impact MSD has on Indian fans (includes a section of the media as well). Well, he is currently leading his state side, Jharkhand in the prestigious Vijay Hazare trophy, being played at the iconic Eden Gardens.
In the tournament, MSD is looking in ominous form scoring 43 and a blitzkrieg 129 against Karnataka and Chattisgarh respectively. This surely augurs well for the RPS unit, come IPL. MS Dhoni will soon be seen as a part of that franchisee.
So, lately here is the reason why he has again made news. He apparently had dinner with his childhood friends, some of whom are now working in Bengal and its suburbs. It was an emotional moment for the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team. We do not know where did they exactly opt to dine or what they had for dinner. These are reports we have received from close sources. We, all we can say is, as humble as it gets!
He is sure among India’s biggest global icons, but the humility in him is what makes him great, apart from his cricketing achievements!
MSD, now that he has got the monkey of his back; will he look to roll back the years or will he wither out? That is going to be interesting to know, sooner rather than later.
