Former India captain MS Dhoni turned 39 on July 7 this year. Due to the COVID-19 situation, he celebrated his birthday at his Ranchi home. At that time, no pictures of his birthday festivities surfaced on social media. However, Dhoni’s wife Sakshi has recently put out a photo on Instagram from the celebration.
The picture features Indian cricketer brother duo Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, who reached Dhoni’s home to surprise him, along with several others. Krunal’s wife Pankhuri and Dhoni’s daughter Ziva can also be seen the photo.
Sharing the image, Sakshi wrote, “Missing the happy squad!” Hardik, Krunal and Pankhuri took a chartered flight to Ranchi to make the occasion more special for Dhoni amid the coronavirus restrictions. Hardik shared some pictures with Dhoni on his birthday to wish him. In one of the pictures, the all-rounder and the former skipper can be seen looking through a binocular. In another photo, they are simply posing with a smile on their face. One picture shows Dhoni having fun on a toy car. The caption of Hardik’s post read, “Happy birthday to my Bittu from your Chittu. My friend, who has taught me to be a better human being and stood by me in bad times @mahi7781.”
Krunal also took to Instagram to extend his wishes to Dhoni. Sharing a picture from Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians IPL match, he wrote, “Mahi bhai! Happy birthday to a legend and the coolest guy around.”
