Still At his Best

MSD is still on the field to excite his fans at the age of 42, when most cricketers retire and seek opportunities to coach or commentate on cricket.

Even when he is not playing cricket, MS Dhoni is busy cultivating at his country residence. This also maintains him as fit as any player today.

Thala supporters could only witness their favorite cricketer play in the Indian Premier League. His fanaticism was so strong that even during away games, the entire stadium became yellow, making it feel like a home game for the Chennai Super Kings. MSD's cricketing career was expected to end with the IPL 2024, but if he plays another season, his supporters would not be surprised because he is still as brilliant at every cricketing talent.
