Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni led his team to lift their fifth trophy in the Indian Premier League 2023, as they defeated Gujarat Titans in the final game of the cash-rich league. The 41-year-old cricketer went through a knee surgery post completion of the tournament, and now he is enjoying his vacation in his hometown. Dhoni recently became the first cricketer in the history to feature in 250 games in the tournament and has now equalled Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma after winning the fifth IPL trophy. The World Cup winning captain was spotted with his friends and elder brother, Narendra Singh Dhoni in Ranchi.
The picture of Dhoni with his brother and friends surfaced on the internet, where the cricketer was spotted in an unusual colourful outfit. Needless to say, it went viral in no time, and Twitter just simply couldn’t keep calm. Where some fans showered love for their ‘Thala’, others noticed his elder brother as it is the first time the former India captain has been spotted with his elder one. Not only this, but contradictory to what Dhoni is known for, some fans noticed a phone in his hand. In addition to this, his unusual outfit didn’t go unnoticed, and fans compared him with the Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who is widely popular for his uncommon dressing style.
Here are some of the best reactions:
Notably, the 2007 World Cup winning captain was seen playing with a heavy stripping on his knee. After the completion of IPL’s 16th edition, Dhoni underwent a knee surgery in Mumbai. Speaking of the 2023 edition of the tournament, there were several speculations that the Ranchi-born would retire from the Indian Premier League after the season. However, Dhoni put an end to all the rumours in the IPL Final and said that he will play for one more season as a token of gratitude towards his fans.
