Everyone wants to become famous. Fame is something that fascinates everyone and makes everyone crave for it. However, those who have already got it hope they can go back to become nobody again. Well, Mahendra Singh Dhoni might feel so. Every little move of his is newspaper headline these days.
Dhoni is spending quality time with his family during the break. Though he is rarely active on social media, his wife Sakshi keeps fans updated with videos of him, Ziva and his dog family. Recently she posted a video which is going viral on social media.
MSD is seen covering his face with a towel in a flight, so as not to get recognized by others. Sakshi posted the video giving the caption, ‘#traveldiaries’. Sakshi posted another video of Dhoni and one more where Ziva is using Snapchat filters.
MS Dhoni was in UAE for the launch of his MS Dhoni Cricket Academy. He has teamed up with Pacific Sports Club and Aarka Sports Club in this venture. Speaking about the academy, Dhoni said, “I am delighted to be a part of this venture and will contribute in every way possible to make it a success. It has been my dream to contribute to the game in every way possible. This is the first step in that direction. The enthusiasm of the trainees is what will drive this venture.”
Recently, critics lashed out at MS Dhoni after his show in the second T20I against New Zealand at Rajkot on November 4. India was required to go at 13 runs per over in later stage of that game when Dhoni and Kohli were batting. Dhoni struggled to find the boundaries and rotate the trike. Hence required rate kept going up. He did manage to hit a couple of sixes though ending up scoring 49 from 37 balls but India eventually lost by 40 runs.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is on the break and will return when India play limited-overs series against Sri Lanka in December. India plays 3 ODIS on December 10, 13, 17 and 3 T20Is 20, 22, 24 respectively against Sri Lanka in December. The ODIS will be at Dharamshala, Mohali, and Vizag respectively. The T20Is are penciled in at Cuttack, Indore, and Mumbai.
Former cricketers like Ajit Agarkar and VVS Laxman believe Mahendra Singh Dhoni should retire from the shortest format of the game. Only Gautam Gambhir came in support of Dhoni saying he deserves credit for what he has done for the nation.
Speaking to Khaleej Times, MSD said, “Everybody has views in life and it should be respected,” when he was asked to comment on Agarkar’s remarks.
