On the occasion of World Social Media Day, India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Wednesday recalled one of his old social media posts where he had posted a lovely image with former India captain MS Dhoni.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has posted an image with Dhoni on August 16, 2020, just one day after Dhoni has announced his retirement from International Cricket. In a video shared by the BCCI Official Twitter handle, Bhuvneshwar Kumar explained why Dhoni will always be close to him & why he wrote such a heartwarming post for Dhoni.
“This image I posted when Mahi Bhai retired from International cricket. Everyone knows what kind of player he was, but the kind of human being he is, that is why I posted something for him. If you speak to anybody about Dhoni, they will all tell you about how helpful he is. He always gives guidance to all the youngsters”, said Bhuvneshwar in the video posted by the BCCI on ‘World Social Media Day.
MS Dhoni is the only Indian Captain to win three ICC Trophies- Champions Trophy, T20 World Cup & ODI World Cup. The former India captain put a curtain on his celebrated International cricketing career on August 15 in 2020. He still leads the CSK team in the IPL.
