Former India captain MS Dhoni is not only known for his on-field brilliance but also for his love for pets, cars and nature. Recently, another pet has added to the list as he bought a black stallion. It has already reached Dhoni’s seven-acre farmhouse on the outskirts of Ranchi before he returned home from Delhi where he was leading his team – Chennai Super Kings in the recently-suspended Indian Premier League (IPL).
However, the tournament was postponed owing to the surge of COVID-19 cases in the bio-bubble. It started with Kolkata Knight Riders’ two players – Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrior. Later, Chennai Super Kings’ bowling coach L Balaji, SunRisers Hyderabad’s Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals’ Amit Mishra has also been tested positive which led the BCCI to call off the tournament as well.
Meanwhile, Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi has posted a video of the horse on her Instagram account with the caption, “Welcome Home Chetak ! A true Gentleman esp when you met Lilly ! Happily accepted in our pack !”
However, MS Dhoni already has a Belgian Malinois, a white husky and a German Shepherd and he is also the second cricketer after all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to keep a horse as a pet.
On the other hand, all players have started leaving the country and a few have already reached home as well. However, Dhoni had earlier said that he would reach home at last after his teammates reach home first safely.
“Mahibhai said that he will be the last person to leave the hotel. He wanted foreigners to leave first, then the Indian players. He will be taking the last flight tomorrow when everyone reaches their home safe and secure,” a member of Chennai Super Kings has said to The Indian Express.
“‘Mahi bhai’ as he is known in his team told his players on a video chat that since the IPL was happening in India, foreigners must leave first and then the domestic players should think of leaving, meanwhile he will be the last person to leave,” further added the report in The Indian Express as well.
