MS Dhoni bid adieu to international cricket in late August 15, 2020. Since then, he has been actively applying his skills and expressing himself in the Indian Premier League. He stunned the cricket fraternity when he handed over the captaincy duty to Ravindra Jadeja.
In fact, he made this decision just days ahead of the fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. Meanwhile, CSK haven’t been performing well this season. They managed to win only 2 games but lost as many as six games and are placed ninth on the IPL 2022 points table.
Now in this article, we will take a look at MS Dhoni’s salary, love story and past profession.
M.S.Dhoni is said to have one of the most inspiring stories of his rise to success as a cricketer. Before making a mark in cricket he worked as a travelling ticket examiner at the Kharagpur railway station from 2001 to 2003.
In 2004 he joined the Indian cricket team and since then the world has known him as one of the best captains of the Indian cricket team who led the team in the 2007 T20 World cup, the 2011 World cup, and the Champions trophy.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of the Indian Cricket team is the second richest cricketer, globally. He is considered the greatest captain of the Indian cricket team.
“Mahi” has a net worth of 846 crore INR. Dhoni also holds the record for the most wicket-keeper catches and was included in the Forbes list of highest-paid athletes in 2018.
Dhoni and Sakshi had known each other since they were children since their fathers both worked for the same company. They attended the same school but had little in common. Sakshi’s family relocated to Dehradun later on and they lost contact.
Almost a decade later in Kolkata, Dhoni met Sakshi at the Taj Bengal, where the Indian team was staying for a match and Sakshi was interning. Yudhajit Dutta, Mahi’s manager, introduced him to Sakshi.
Surprisingly, it was her last day of internship. Dhoni was rather charmed, and when Sakshi left, he took her number from the manager and texted her.
When Sakshi received a text from Dhoni, she mistook it for a joke. Then, she realised that it was indeed Dhoni who messaged her. Mahi had to put in a lot of work to become friends with her.
It didn’t take them long to fall in love with each other and they started dating in March 2008. Captain Cool made sure he made those tiny efforts to keep his love lady happy. When Sakshi went to his birthday party, he took an hour off and dropped her off at home so that he could spend more quality time with her.
On July 3, 2010, Dhoni and Sakshi were engaged in a quiet ceremony in Dehradun. The media was kept out and the engagement was attended by family members from both sides of the family.
On July 4, 2010, the pair exchanged wedding vows in Vishranti Resort, a farmhouse in Dehradun. Dhoni’s cricket and entertainment associates were a part of it. Many celebrities, including Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, John Abraham, and Farah Khan, were regarded as baaratis.
