Former team India captain MS Dhoni is known for his tactics, multinational tournament wins, Indian T20 League records, ‘helicopter’ shot and his love for motorbikes. The mighty wicketkeeper’s love for cars and bikes was never a lowdown, given that he has always been loquacious about the same whenever he attends a press conference.

Only a countable amount of fans could have imagined the worse for him with the one that he loves, struggling to start his bike. Much to the surprise of the Dhoni fans, a video emerged on social media revealing the superstar floundering to start his bike, eventually going to the basics of driving, pushing it forward with his legs.

Ben Stokes is in, to lead Chennai after 2023?

One has to agree that the Chennai management were having a fun ride at the recently concluded Indian T20 League mini-auction for the 2023 edition, with them roping in the star English allrounder Ben Stokes and New Zealand ace pacer Kyle Jamieson. Chennai bought the southpaw for a bumper price of INR 16.5 crore. With hints being given at Dhoni’s retirement post the conclusion of the much-anticipated league, in all likelihood, Stokes might be given the task to lead the team, given that the veteran has already proved his prowess in the longest format of the game and his ability to finish games in the shorter formats is prominent.

Ravindra Jadeja, the Indian allrounder, was given the task to lead the side last year, causing befuddlement and forcing the management to go back to the former Indian wicketkeeper. With the Indian allrounder out of contention for the task, Stokes might be the only option left for the team, although one could consider Moeen Ali for the same. This will, however, much to the delight of the Chennai fans, not be the first time Stokes would be playing alongside Dhoni, as the duo had already been a part of the Pune franchise in 2017, although Stokes will play for the first time under the captainship of the veteran.
