Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni and Sakshi completed a decade of togetherness as husband and wife. The couple tied the knot ten years ago on July 4 in Dehradun with a little pomp and fanfare.
The couple, as of now, is staying at their farmhouse in Ranchi in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, fans across the nation flocked to social media platforms and left no stones unturned to celebrate their anniversary.
Chennai Super Kings, the franchise he captains in the cash-laden IPL, released a short video on Twitter featuring the iconic cricketer’s wife. The video was rather amusing for the fans where Sakshi didn’t miss an opportunity and took a sly dig at Dhoni’s hairstyle in his younger days.
“If I had seen him with that orange long hair, I wouldn’t have even looked at him. There has to be some aesthetics,” said Sakshi, making fun of the strange hairstyle Dhoni kept in his youth.
Sakshi further talked about the crest and trough the pair endured throughout the decade due to Dhoni’s inability to devote more time to the family. Mahi, as he is lovingly called, was with the Indian team in February 2015 when the duo was blessed with a baby daughter.
Here’s the video:

The iconic Indian wicket-keeper is approaching the dusk of his marvellous career, distinguished by the triumph in all three ICC tournaments as a captain.
Having won three championships with CSK, Dhoni is one of the most successful captains of IPL. The Ranchi-born leader is probably the best finisher in modern-days cricket, scoring more than 4000 runs batting at the lowly No. 6 position.
He hasn’t played professional cricket since the semi-final defeat against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019.
