It has been more than a year since former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni retired from international cricket. Dhoni is now seen playing only in the matches of the Indian Premier League. He will be seen captaining Chennai Super Kings in the second phase of IPL-14 starting from September 19, but before that his look is going viral on social media.
Fans might have never seen him in such a look before. Star Sports, the official broadcaster of IPL, has given a glimpse of this new look of Dhoni to the fans. While sharing the photo of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s rockstar look from his official Twitter account, Star Sports wrote, ‘Mahendra Singh Dhoni is preparing to do something new before IPL 2021. Stay connected with us to see the original picture.
Star Sports has always been very creative with IPL campaigns. He had shown Dhoni as a Buddhist monk before the first leg of the 14th season of IPL. Not only was that campaign praised, but Dhoni’s acting skills were also appreciated.
The very calm CSK captain Dhoni was seen in the ad, citing the example of Virat Kohli, telling students that it is okay to be angry if it helps you succeed. Similarly, he was seen calling Mumbai Indians to captain Rohit Sharma greedy in an ad. Dhoni narrates the story of Rohit Sharma to some children. He says, ‘Today’s topic is greed. This is the story of Hitman Rohit.
Children ask Dhoni if the hitman will hit a hat-trick again? So on this Dhoni says, ‘Whose mantra will work, only time will tell.’
