MS Dhoni, who announced his international retirement on 15th of August is arguably the most decorated captain of all time. From having no captaincy experience to leading India in all three formats to winning all ICC trophies, he has come a full circle. Dhoni has struck tons of sixes in his career, but one of his six costs a Pakistani cricketer his date.
During a tri-series involving Kenya, India A and Pakistan, Dhoni was handed over a chance in the side since Dinesh Karthik was with the Indian national side. India A were playing against Pakistan A, where MS Dhoni tonked the Pakistani bowling attack scoring a 134-ball 119.
When a Dhoni Six costs Pakistani cricketer his date
Though Dhoni’s innings couldn’t win India the match, it ultimately cost a Pakistani player a date with an Indian girl. A Pakistani fielder was trying to set up a date for himself with a girl sitting in the stands. However, a six from MS Dhoni hit the girl and needed medical assistance. The dream of the Pakistani cricketer of a potential date remained a dream his entire life.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni continued the onslaught in the series in the remaining matches as he scored 362 runs in six innings at an average of 72.40. The form in this series eventually led to him getting a national call-up. Ever since, he hasn’t looked back as he’s lead India to the ICC World T20 in 2007, ICC World Cup in 2011 and the ICC Champions trophy in 2013.
He last played an international game for India during the World Cup semi-final and New Zealand in 2019. He’s all set to turn up for the Chennai Super Kings in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League.
The tournament is all set to take place in the UAE from 19th September onwards. All the teams have already landed and will begin their training soon.
