Fan-favorite ‘Mahi’ played a captain’s knock at the Wankhede to help India chase down the target set by Sri Lanka and sent the Indian fans in the frenzy.

Dhoni is still hopeful and working hard to make a comeback

In an exclusive interview to ABP a close friend of Dhoni spilled some beans about MS Dhoni’s future. The Friend of Dhoni wished anonymity and did not want to reveal his identity.

Mahi gets angry when we ask him questions on his retirement. He still feels he is the fittest of all and quickest wicket-keeper in India.

He [Dhoni] has worked even harder in the last few months before everything stopped. I haven’t seen him doing agility training so intensely ever. He knows he is not getting younger and perhaps that is why training even harder to keep himself fit.

He has proved everyone wrong when no one backed him. Now there are millions of fans to back him. So he will take his chances for sure.
