MS Dhoni is not only considered one of the quickest men behind the stumps, he is widely regarded as one of the most revered sportspersons in the world. In a picture shared online, we get to see the former international’s masterclass. Not just fans, his teammates are evidently seen in awe of the cricket great.
A video shared online shows a padded-up Dhoni walking from the pavilion to the crease. A nostalgic moment for the lovers of the game and his fans. The 39-year-old is captured in ‘Now and Then’ video ahead of practice.
CSK will have Suresh Raina aka Chinna Thala donning the yellow jersey in the forthcoming edition. He opted out from the season, last year citing personal reasons. The former international is yet to join his fellow teammates in the nets. He was slated to join the training camp on March 15 but will be available only after March 24.
