It has been almost three years since MS Dhoni played his last international game. But the former Indian skipper’s fame does not seem to go down at all. Dhoni has been a trend in India and his vast amount of fans and followers will never be faded, considering his achievements and character.
Tomorrow (on July 7), the former Indian wicketkeeper-batter will be turning 41 and his fans in Vijayawada, a city in Andhra Pradesh, have made Dhoni’s massive cutout of 41 feet. The cutout has Dhoni’s still picture while smashing the iconic six in the 2011 World Cup final.
The photograph of the cutout has gone viral across the internet and fans are reacting to Dhoni’s craze across the country.

MS Dhoni to play the 2023 season of IPL
Besides, Dhoni was last seen in action while leading the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. CSK had to endure one of the toughest runs so far and Dhoni was handed the captaincy in the mid-season by Ravindra Jadeja.
CSK finished ninth in the points table, just above their traditional rivals Mumbai Indians (MI), and could not qualify for the playoffs after their title-winning run of the 2021 season.
But, Dhoni individually, scored 232 runs in 13 innings, at a strike rate of 123.40, with an unbeaten half-century in 38 deliveries, against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), in the opening game.
Dhoni has also confirmed that he will be playing in the 2023 season. “It will be unfair to not play in Chennai and it won’t be nice to the CSK fans,” the legendary cricketer had said.
