Former India skipper MS Dhoni is currently out of action, having announced his retirement from international cricket in August 2020. The veteran wicket-keeper will now be seen in action during the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Prior to the start of the tournament, the IPL’s broadcaster Star Sports shared a preview of MS Dhoni’s new look, presumably for a promotional video, on social media. In the promos, Dhoni can be seen wearing a khaki shirt and pants, in what looks like a bus driver’s uniform.
Watch: the almost unrecognizable look of MS Dhoni
In one of the promos he can also be seen wearing funky sunglasses.
Interestingly, Dhoni had turned himself into a monk for a few promos, prior to the start of last season’s IPL.
Dhoni will lead the defending champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) after being retained by the franchise ahead of the IPL mega auction earlier this month.
The countdown has already begun for the start of the upcoming season of the IPL. The tournament kicks off exactly one month from now on March 26, with matches being played at four locations in Mumbai and Pune.
For the upcoming season, the 10 teams, including the two new franchises — Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Gujarat Titans (GT) — will be divided into two groups of five teams each.
In Group A, five-time champions Mumbai Indians were drawn alongside Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
In Group C, CSK were joined by SunRisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans.
