There are many facets to MS Dhoni's personality. Apart from having one of the sharpest cricketing minds and being the only captain to win all three ICC trophies, Dhoni is also known for his automobile collection. And when one has as great a collection of bikes and cars as he has, why w ouldn't one flaunt it?
The Chennai Super Kings captain can not only be spotted enjoying bike rides in the streets of Ranchi but in a recent incident was seen giving a late-night ride to fellow cricketers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Kedar Jadhav in his brand-new SUV from Kia. While Dhoni only plays in the Indian Premier League after announcing retirement from international cricket in 2020, Ruturaj and Kedar were in Jharkhand for the Vijay Hazare domestic tournament.
The video of Dhoni driving Gaikwad and Jadhav has gone viral on the internet.
Apart from the latest addition to his collection of cars, Dhoni is often seen driving the Hummer. In addition, he has a Land Rover Discovery and a Freelander. His garage also has a specially customised Mahindra Scorpio. Other than cars, he has an extensive collection of rare, lavish and exotic bikes and motorcycles.
Talking about his cricket, Dhoni will continue to lead Chennai in IPL 2023. As he publicly announced that he would want to hang up his boots at the Chepauk which is the Chennai Super Kings' home, this could be his final year in the tournament given that the competition is set to return in a home and away format.
Prior to the mini-auction in December, the four-time champions have released players like Dwayne Bravo, Robin Uthappa, Adam Milne, Hari Nishaanth, Chris Jordan, Bhagath Varma, KM Asif and Narayan Jagadeesan which leaves them with INR 20.45 Crore remaining in their purse. IPL 2023 auctions will be held on December 23 in Kochi.
