MS Dhoni turned 37 on Saturday only a day after he walked out to play his 500th international game against England in Cardiff. Team India celebrated the birthday of the legend after the game with his beloved wife Sakshi Dhoni and an adorable daughter Ziva by his side. The cricketing fraternity is also celebrating the special day of one of the best cricketers in the world as they are busy wishing him on social media.
Dhoni is touted as one of the best captains the game has ever seen. He is the only captain to win all the three ICC trophies, World Cup, World T20 and Champions Trophy. He shouldered the responsibility of leading Team India for almost 10 years successfully and also took the side to the number 1 position for the first time in 2009.
Almost every cricket fan along with the experts love the way he stays calm during the tough situations. Dhoni has won so many matches for his country in the last over when the hopes of victory had vanished. There is a reason why he is termed as the captain cool and it was once again proved this year when he won the Indian Premier League (IPL) for his franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Birthday messages for Mahi
The man who wears the jersey number 7 was born on 7th July 1981 and is serving the country in the game of cricket since last 14 years. While he is at the fag end of his career, he is still one of the fittest players in the squad and is going strong. The way he batted in the IPL recently recalled the MS Dhoni of 2004 who used to bludgeon the ball with utmost power.
It is no surprise that the legends of the cricketing fraternity are wishing Dhoni on his special day. Many have admired his calm demeanour in their birthday wish and the whole country is now hoping that the Men in Blue wins the World Cup for him next year which might probably be the swansong of his illustrious career.
Here’s how the cricketing fraternity wished Dhoni on his birthday:

Dear Mahi Bhai, I have always believed that people are placed in life for a reason, and sometimes you don't expect someone to have an impact on your life until they do. You have been through so much, but continue to push past any obstacle that falls into your path. You keep calm so well, and it's like a super power of yours. You inspire me everyday to want to be a better & tough person to face my own challenges. But most of all, I want to thank you for being the best role model we all could look up to. Once a fanboy, always a fan boy! 😍 Happy Birthday Mahi Bhai! 🤗 @mahi7781

MS Dhoni is already a cricketing legend, be it with his winning sixes or his cool captaincy. So here's a good time to look at how he has reinvented himself off late to remain a crucial part of India's success with the white ball. #AakashVani pic.twitter.com/bq1EoEPfVR
