[WATCH]- MS Dhoni Receives Loud Cheers As He Arrived At A Local Polling Booth In Ranchi To Cast His Vote

Former India captain MS Dhoni received a warm welcome as he arrived at a local polling booth in Ranchi to vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections. The legendary cricketer was met with loud cheers as he exited his car, with numerous media personnel trying to capture the moment.

Ranchi is one of Jharkhand’s 14 Lok Sabha constituencies, with Sanjay Seth of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) as the current Member of Parliament (MP). The Press Trust of India (PTI) posted the video on X (formerly Twitter) and wrote:

“Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Former India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni arrives at a polling booth set up in Jawahar Vidya Mandir School, #Ranchi, Jharkhand, to cast his vote.”

MS Dhoni is among India’s most successful captains, having won three ICC trophies, including two World Cups in T20I and ODI formats. He has also led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to five IPL titles. The 42-year-old retired from international cricket on August 15, 2020, but has not yet retired from the IPL.

Former politician Subramanian Swamy urged MS Dhoni to run in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In 2020, he wrote on X (formerly Twitter):

“M. S. Dhoni is retiring from Cricket but not from anything else. His talent-to be able to fight against odds and his inspiring leadership of a team that he has demonstrated in cricket is needed in public life. He should fight in LS General Elections in 2024.”

“I’m more of an Army guy than a politician” –MS Dhoni on the possibility of entering politics

In an old interview, MS Dhoni stated he has no interest in politics. The 42-year-old holds an honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Indian Territorial Army. He said (via The SportsRush):

“I’m more of an Army guy than a politician. I love spending time with the army. I’m pretty much straightforward. If I ever have to get in politics, I’ll have to really study a lot, do a lot of changes and only then I’ll be able to adapt.”

“But, it is a big thing to be admired by so many people, and thanks to Cricket. If I’d not been playing Cricket, there wouldn’t be so many people admiring me.”

Dhoni last played for CSK in IPL 2024 and has not yet decided on his T20 career. CSK CEO Kasi Vishwanathan has supported him to continue playing in the IPL 2025 season. He recently stated (via CSK’s YouTube channel):

“He has always taken his decisions and announced it at the appropriate time. We do expect that we will get a decision as and when he decides. But we are very, very hopeful that he will be available for CSK next year. That is the view and expectations of the fans and mine.”

According to reports, MS Dhoni will undergo knee surgery, which will determine his future ahead of IPL 2025.
