While MS Dhoni has been absolutely incredible in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season, constant support from his wife Sakshi cannot go unnoticed. Mrs Dhoni has ensured that she stays with her spouse all the time and has been spotted in every game CSK played so far in the season. She has been a constant support system for the former Indian keeper and also has their daughter Ziva along so that the father-daughter duo get to spend enough time together despite his cricketing commitments.

Dhoni looked in sublime touch last night, from the go as he hit Amit Mishra for a six down the ground soon after walking in. The wicketkeeper-batsman registered a breezy fifty, which included 5 monstrous sixes to finish the proceedings in style powering Chennai Super Kings to a massive total of 211/4. With this quickfire innings, Dhoni with 3556 runs also became the captain to score most runs in IPL history, surpassing Gambhir in the process.

While MS was busy muscling the bowlers all around the MCA Stadium in Pune, his wife Sakshi could be seen cheering on every little instance. She was spotted alongside Harbhajan Singh’s wife Geeta Basra and Priyanka Raina in the stands and looked super thrilled as Dhoni clobbered a 22-ball fifty.

Awe-inspiring story of Sakshi and MS

Much like Dhoni’s cricketing career, his love story is awe-inspiring as well. Sakshi and Dhoni had known each other since childhood but before cupid could roll out its arrows, Sakshi’s family got shifted to Dehradun.

The duo finally met after a gap of almost a decade, miles away from their home. The met in a hotel in Kolkata where Sakshi was interning and Dhoni was lodging with the Indian team. And it was Dhoni who took the first initiative, as he asked the hotel manager for her number and texted her.

Initially, Sakshi was clouded in doubt, believing that the messages from Dhoni to be some kind of a prank. However, she soon realized that it was indeed the ‘captain of the Indian team’ himself. It eventually took a lot of wooing and chasing on Dhoni’s part, which went on for two months, to conquer the heart of this lady.
