Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of cricket's greatest leaders and legend, celebrated his 43rd birthday on Sunday, July 7, 2024. MS Dhoni, who debuted in 2004, has been a cornerstone of Indian cricket, leading the team to numerous victories.

Under his leadership, India won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, the 50-over World Cup in 2011, and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013. He also became a five-time IPL-winning skipper for Chennai Super Kings.

As the clock struck midnight, social media was abuzz with birthday wishes from ex-cricketers and Bollywood stars, celebrating Dhoni's legacy.

Ruturaj's heartfelt birthday video call to Dhoni

Among the heartfelt wishes, a special video call stood out. Ruturaj Gaikwad, the current Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper, called MS Dhoni to wish him a happy birthday. The video call highlighted the strong bond and mutual respect between the two players.

Gaikwad, who took over as CSK skipper in IPL 2024, expressed his gratitude to his predecessor, who has been a mentor and guiding force for him.

Gaikwad's CSK teammates Mukesh Kumar and Tushar Deshpande joined him on the call. The trio, who are currently in Zimbabwe for a T20I series, honoured the legendary cricketer.

Their gesture underscored their deep admiration for Dhoni, who has always guided and supported young talents like Gaikwad during IPL 2024.

Interestingly, India's young team faced a setback, losing the first T20I to Zimbabwe just a day before Dhoni's birthday. As they gear up for the second T20I on Dhoni's birthday, they are motivated to secure a win and dedicate it to the former Indian captain.

Dhoni, known for staying away from social media, recently made headlines by congratulating the Indian team after their T20 World Cup 2024 victory, calling it a special birthday gift. As he turns 43, the cricketing world continues to celebrate his contributions and legacy.
