MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi, celebrated her 32nd birthday on Thursday. Wishes poured in from all over the cricket world for Sakshi, who was in Dubai for the celebrations with her daughter Ziva and MS Dhoni. Dhoni and Sakshi were joined by Indian tennis player Sania Mirza and Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik in Dubai. Sania Mirza posted an Instagram story in which Dhoni, Sakshi, Shoaib and her sister Anam posed for a photo. “Fun Times,” Sania wrote with a heart emoji as she shared the photo.
On the field, Dhoni had an underperforming season with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL).
Under Dhoni’s captain, CSK failed to qualify for the play-offs of the lucrative league for the first time in their history.
Dhoni, who played his first competitive tournament after the 2019 World Cup semi-final, looked out of touch and was able to accumulate just 200 runs from 14 games in the 13th edition of the IPL.
Dhoni scored these runs with an average of 25 and a strike rate of 116.27.
It was rumored that IPL 2020 could be Dhoni’s last season in CSK livery, but the former Indian captain knocked the air in the last league game and said he will be back in the next edition, hoping to change things for the three-time IPL champions.
On the other hand, Shoaib Malik was last seen in the Pakistan Super League Eliminator 1, representing Peshawar Zalmi.
Malik played 39 of 24 balls, but Peshawar was eliminated from the tournament after losing five wicket to Lahore Qalandars.
