Mahendra Singh Dhoni celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday. Fans celebrated his birthday by wishing him on social media and by remembering his memorable knocks. Similarly a lot of Indian former and current players too wished Dhoni on his 40th birthday. From Sachin to Kohli and Sehwag to Raina, they took their time and praised the world cup winning captain on his birthday.
However Dhoni being the man he is, was comfortably enjoying in his Ranchi famhouse away from the din of social media. Sporting a long moustache and a whitish beard, Dhoni was all smiles in the pictures.
A fan of Dhoni called Raushan Kumar who is on a payroll of Eeja farms clicked a few pictures with the former great. On his Instagram account, he posted a couple of photos with Dhoni. The caption of it read :

Quiet 40th birthday for Dhoni!
Another fortunate fan to have a picture with Dhoni was Seemant Lohani. The latter happens to be a family friend of the former Indian wicket keeper. In the picture, the families of both Dhoni and Lohani can be seen. The members of the families are looking jovial as Dhoni sits next to his wife Sakshi and their daughter Ziva.
In cricketing scenario, Dhoni will be seen next in the IPL. Earlier the tournament was postponed in first week of May in India. Moreover just about half the season was completed as COVID-19 breached the bio bubble of the players. Hence the tournament was called off with immediate effect to minimize the damage.
Now the BCCI has planned to re start the IPL in September. This time the tournament will be hosted by UAE as it is the safest option with minimal cases of COVID. The desert nation has hosted the IPL in 2014 and 2020 as well when the IPL had to be moved out of India.
