Back in May, MS Dhoni confirmed that he will be back next year playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the Chennai Super Kings. He has been the face of CSK for well over a decade. Under him, CSK has won four IPL titles in 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021. Dhoni also represented the Rising Pune Supergiant for two years. But when he returned to lead the CSK again, he led them to their third IPL trophy.
Meanwhile, coming to his birthday celebrations, his wife Sakshi shared a glimpse of Dhoni's birthday celebration on her Instagram account. In the clip, the cricketer can be seen cutting the cake. In the background, a big banner that read, “Happy Birthday Mahi” can also be seen hanging.
