‘MS Dhoni cried that evening’: Veteran India spinner shares never-heard earlier than story about CSK skipper


MS Dhoni, also known as “Captain Cool” by his followers, is understood for his emotionally impenetrable persona on the sector. No matter how tense the state of affairs, Dhoni all the time appears to have his feelings below management. However, his former India and Chennai Super Kings teammate, Harbhajan Singh, lately shared an unheard story involving the CSK skipper.

In a video shared by Star Sports, Harbhajan revealed that in 2018, throughout CSK’s comeback within the IPL after being suspended for 2 seasons over their alleged involvement within the IPL betting scandal, Dhoni cried whereas surrounded by his teammates. This revelation got here as a shock to many, as Dhoni is understood for his stoic demeanor on the sector.

Even Imran Tahir, one other former CSK spinner, validated the story, stating that it was throughout that second that he realized simply how shut the staff was to Dhoni. 

“There is a story which I want to share. Back in 2018, when CSK made a comeback to this league after a 2-year ban, there was a team dinner. I have heard the saying that ‘Men don’t cry’, but MS Dhoni cried on that night. He became emotional. I think no one knows about this. Right, Imran (Tahir)?”

“Yes, of course,” Tahir mentioned. “Even I was there. It was a very emotional moment for him (MS Dhoni). Looking at him like that, I came to know how close this team is to his heart. He considers the team as his family. It was very emotional for all of us.”

The South African cricketer expressed his delight within the staff’s victory, particularly contemplating the consultants had labeled them as too previous.

“We came back after 2 years and won the trophy. And when people give your team the tag of ‘buddhe’ (old men), and even I was in the squad that season, but we won the title. I am very proud of that victory,” Tahir added.
