MS Dhoni was spotted playing a football match in Mumbai.
Apart from the game of cricket, former India captain MS Dhoni is also crazy about football. Whenever he gets free time, the 40-year-old can be seen indulging in the game with his friends. This time too, the wicketkeeper-batter got an opportunity to play a game of football, albeit for a noble cause.
He was seen playing the game for team All Stars Football Club, which conducts matches to collect income for charity while also making sure to promote the game in India. Apart from few cricketers, many Bollywood celebrities participate in this friendly event. Prominent actor Ranveer Singh too was seen in this match playing alongside Dhoni.
Well, it is a known fact that Ranveer is a big fan of the Ranchi-born cricketer. In several interviews, he expressed his love, affection, and respect towards Dhoni. Be it cheering for him while playing or adoring his hairstyle and looks, Ranveer simply loves the legendary skipper and never shies away from expressing his love towards him.
Ahead of the friendly match, the actor was seen photographed with Dhoni. In a picture that is going viral, Ranveer was seen having a conversation with MSD wearing a neon green jersey. The actor can also be seen touching Dhoni’s legs. He even captioned the picture with an adorable caption and mentioned, ‘Bade Bhai ke Charnon mein hamesha’, which roughly translates to, (always following the big brother by being respectful towards him).
MS Dhoni is still a vital cog for Chennai Super Kings
Although Dhoni quit international cricket in August 2020, he still is the key player and for Chennai Super Kings (CSK). After a dismal performance in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Dhoni came back with a bang in the 14th edition leading CSK to second spot on the points table before the league got suspended in May.
With the second leg of IPL set to resume on September 19 in the UAE, Dhoni and his captaincy moves will again play a crucial role in shaping CSK’s fortunes. With the mega auctions lined up in early 2022, all eyes will be on CSK management, to see whether they retain their talismanic skipper for the next three years.
