Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni turned another leaf in his book as he turned 39 years old on Tuesday. On the special occasion, the Indian cricket fraternity joined hands to wish their former skipper a very happy birthday. Dhoni was last seen in the Indian colours in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Unfortunately, India lost the game to New Zealand and were eliminated from the competition.
Since then, Dhoni has been away from the Indian team. His return was much anticipated with the return of IPL 2020 this year as he was back to the field sweating it hard for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). However, the BCCI had to postpone the tournament indefinitely due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. And, this has again given way to speculations on Dhoni’s future with Team India.
