M.S Dhoni, with the Indian team, is currently in Indore for the third One-Day International. India have taken a 2-0 lead following a thumping win in Kolkata and will be looking to take an unassailable lead in the series.
M.S Dhoni represented the Rising Pune Supergiants in the IPL during CSK’s absence from the prestigious Indian T20 tournament. While it is still not official that he will be playing for the Super Kings, the team will want dearly want their skipper back in the side.
During the Tamil Nadu Premier League, the Chennai people’s love and affection for the man they call as ‘Thala’ was pretty evident. However, no matter for which side Dhoni plays, his popularity among the Indian fans will likely be unaffected.
