The eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 has brought out a different version of MS Dhoni for cricket fanatics. It’s a matter to rejoice that the man, who has been entertaining us for more than a decade is back in his form. More importantly, his discussions with every young and budding cricketer from the opposition side is increasing the level of his greatness.
On May 3, when the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) welcomed the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Edens, it was a special moment for the young KKR speedster Shivam Mavi who came into limelight after his victorious sting at the U-19 World Cup. Since their first game against CSK, Mavi wasn’t a part of the KKR playing XI. Finally, he had that chance to bowl to one of the finest cricketers of India.
After the game ended and KKR defeated CSK by 6 wickets, Mavi met Mahi, had pictures clicked and then shared on his social media account with a ‘fanboy’ caption.
The pieces of advice you gave me after the match are highly appreciated and words can neither qualify nor quantify your guidance and useful advice. Your perseverance, integrity and people-loving nature are just a few of your qualities that continue to inspire me. #Mahibhai pic.twitter.com/CfRB2mTDnD

So this was the 4th incident when the coolest head from team India was spotted with budding Indian talents. Starting with Ishan Kishan, Dhoni’s pictures with Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw had already created a buzz on social media. And this one with Mavi is the new addition to the list.
Well, the ongoing season is just half done. Let’s wait for more fireworks from Thala Dhoni on the field and some greatness after the game.
