Former India captain MS Dhoni celebrated his 39th birthday on July 7. Wishes flooded in for him from all the corners of the country on social media. Even his wife Sakshi penned down a beautiful message for him while also sharing some of his latest pictures for the fans. During the day, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya decided to fly to Ranchi to wish the birthday boy and celebrate the occasion.
Hardik is supposedly very close to MS Dhoni as he made his international debut under him back in 2016 during Australia tour. Rather the all-rounder has often credited his success to the veteran cricketer. Even in his birthday wish on social media earlier in the day, Hardik had stated that Dhoni taught him to be a better human being.
“Happy birthday to my Bittu from your Chittu. My friend who has taught me to be a better human being and stood by me in bad times @msdhoni,” Hardik had tweeted. His brother, Krunal termed MS Dhoni as the legend and the coolest guy around in his tweet.
Fans gather around to get a glimpse of Pandya brothers
Coming back to their surprise visit to Ranchi to wish MS Dhoni on his birthday, fans flocked in to get a glimpse of their favourite players soon after they landed in the city. Reportedly, they hired a charter to reach Ranchi. A car was ready for them to pick up and drop to Dhoni’s home and the video of the same has gone viral now.
Here’s the video:
As far as cricket is concerned, Hardik Pandya is yet to make a comeback after his back injury. He last played for India in September 2019 in a T20I against South Africa. He was set to return to the action for the ODI series in March but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and since then, India hasn’t played even a single international game.
Rather international cricket only resumed on July 8 with a Test match between England and West Indies in Southampton. Indian cricketers are now likely to play directly in Indian Premier League (IPL) which might be played in September-November window.
