MS Dhoni ends suspense, features in new advertisement for biscuit brand

India Today 25-09-2022 India Today Web Desk

MS Dhoni featured in a new advertisement for a biscuit brand, ending the suspense which kept his fans curious to know what their beloved cricketer would share.

In a Facebook post, Dhoni said that he would be sharing exciting news with his fans on Sunday, September 25.

During an event, Dhoni invited a reporter on stage and told him that when the biscuit brand was launched in 2011 then India also won the World Cup. The former India cricketer went on to say: "This year we have one more World Cup. And if the biscuit brand can launch again, then India can win the Cup again.

"I'm bringing 2011 again because to create history, we need to recreate history."

Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the best wicket-keepers in the world. He led India to three ICC trophies - 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. Dhoni, who made his India in 2004, represented the nation in 350 ODIs, 98 T20Is and 90 Tests and scored 17,266 runs across all formats.

Although Dhoni is known for his composure on and off the field, the former India cricketer recently revealed the reason why he doesn't get angry on the field. He said that he tries to control his emotions, as at the end of the day he, too, is a human.

Recently, while speaking on Livfast, Dhoni said that he first tries to get into the shoes of fellow players to understand why they dropped a catch or why they misfielded. "Getting angry does not help matters. There are already 40,000 people watching from the stands and crores of people watching the match (on TV, streaming platforms). I had to see what the reason was (for fielding lapses).

"If a player is 100 per cent attentive on the ground and he misses a catch despite that, I don't have a problem. Of course, I also want to see how many catches he took during practice before that.. if he had a problem somewhere and he is making efforts to get better or not. I used to focus on all these aspects instead of focusing on whether a catch was dropped. Maybe we lost a game because of that, but the effort was always to try to step into their shoes."

Dhoni announced his retirement from Test cricket in December 2014. Three years later, he stepped down as captain of India T20I and ODI teams in 2017. The wicketkeeper-batter retired from international cricket on August 15 in 2020, leaving his fans teary-eyed. He, however, continued to play for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and during the concluded 2022 season said that he will play in the 2023 IPL.
