On Saturday, October 21, Khan posted a photo on social media in which he and Dhoni posed together in what appeared to be a hotel room. Dhoni sported a black T-shirt, while Khan went for a white Tee.
Rashid Khan provided a caption for the Instagram post:
“Always a pleasure to meet you Mahi bhai,” while tagging Dhoni.
During Afghanistan’s stay in Chennai for their upcoming match, Dhoni frequently visits the city for business commitments.
Apart from his role as the CSK captain, he serves as the Vice President of Marketing at India Cements, a Chennai-based company that sponsors the Super Kings. Additionally, he was recently spotted in Mumbai for a commercial shoot.
In 2011, Dhoni led India to their second ODI World Cup victory. In the current edition of the prestigious ICC tournament, Rohit Sharma aims to emulate that success.
Rashid Khan’s Afghanistan to clash with Pakistan in the 2023 World Cup
On October 23, Afghanistan is scheduled to compete against Pakistan at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, aiming for their second victory in the 2023 World Cup.
Under the leadership of Hashmatullah Shahidi, the team secured a 69-run win over defending champions England, marking only their second ODI World Cup victory.
But, they didn’t win against Bangladesh, India, and New Zealand. New Zealand won by a big margin, 149 runs, in their last match. Rashid Khan did well with six wickets in four matches.
In Chennai, he took eight wickets in seven Indian Premier League matches. Khan and his teammate Mujeeb Ur Rahman will try to take advantage of the spin-friendly conditions when playing against Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Pakistan recently suffered two losses to India (by seven wickets) and Australia (by 62 runs). But they began with wins, defeating Netherlands by 81 runs and Sri Lanka by six wickets in their first two matches.
