As legendary India cricketer MS Dhoni turned 39 on Tuesday (July 7), birthday wishes poured in for him from various quarters across the globe.
While teammates and opposition players posted heartfelt words for Dhoni on social media, Cricket Australia's Twitter handle came up with a unique content to extend their greetings.
Hailing the former India skipper as “one of the biggest hitters”, cricket.com.au shared a video of Dhoni in which he can be seen smashing the ball out of the park down under.
The number of retweets and likes on the clip once again gave an idea of Dhoni’s immense popularity, despite him being at the twilight of his career.
It has been almost a year since MS Dhoni last played any form of competitive cricket. The World Cup 2019 semi-final against New Zealand at Old Trafford was his last appearance in Team India colours.
In a bid to stake claim for a place in the national squad for T20 World Cup, Dhoni was set to lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the 13th edition of Indian Premier League but the Coronavirus outbreak forced the BCCI to suspend the cash-rich event indefinitely.
