In a disturbing incident, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's five-year old daughter received rape threats from social media trolls following Chennai Super Kings' loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Tuesday night.
The IPL tournament is at a crucial juncture and things are not looking good for Mahendra Singh Dhoni and three time champions Chennai Super Kings (“Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 10 wickets,” Oct. 24, Gulf Today).
R. Madhavan has hailed the detainment of the 16-year-old boy in Gujarat, for allegedly issuing rape threat against cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni's minor daughter.
An example of his humble nature was seen recently when Dhoni, en route to the UAE for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) teammates, swapped his business class seat with an economy class passenger. Dhoni had apparently done so as the passenger's legs were 'too long' to fit in an economy class seat.
The cricket legend MS Dhoni finally retired after a long cricketing career. During his career he brought laurels to the country by winning two world cups and the Champions Trophy. His cool nature and temperament towards the game was amazing.
Dhoni and surprises go hand in hand. The former Indian captain stunned the cricket world in 2014 by quitting Tests just after finishing as the country’s most successful skipper in the five-day format.
The 39-year-old wicketkeeper and batsman is India's most successful captain having won the World Cup, the inaugural T20 World Cup and the Champions Trophy.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the most successful captain in the history of Indian cricket, opted for a Sahir Ludhianvi lyric about the transience of fame and adulation as accompaniment for his retirement announcement.
Dhoni, 39, called time on his 16-year-old international career Saturday with a cryptic message on his Instagram post that read "From 1929hrs consider me as retired."
From humble beginnings in the eastern city of Ranchi, before working as a ticket collector on the railways in Kharagpur in West Bengal, to Indian cricket's poster boy with a fleet of superbikes, Dhoni's life has even been chronicled in a Bollywood biopic.
