‘Dalai Thala’, ‘Monk’, ‘Saint’…these are all the words fans used after seeing Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) skipper MS Dhoni’s new look ahead of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The former Indian captain has always experimented with his looks and has been seen in different hairstyles almost every other year. However, the ‘Captain Cool’, who is gearing up for the cash-rich tournament, managed to stun the cricket fans with his brand new look.
The official broadcaster of IPL, Star sports, shared a picture of Dhoni on their official Twitter handle where MSD can be seen wearing the dress of a saint and sporting a completely bald look. In addition, the batsman is also seen sitting in a forest-like place that screams peace and harmony.
“Our faces since we saw #MSDhoni’s new avatar that could just break the Internet! What do you think is it about?” Star Sports tweeted.
The picture soon went viral on social media garnering thousands of likes and comments from cricket enthusiasts.
Star Sports posted another photo on Twitter with a disclaimer that read: “Set up in a marital arts training camp”.
While there no official confirmation, speculations are rife that the MS Dhoni’s New Monk look is from an upcoming advertisement. Netizens even said that Mahi has always been a monk, even on the field so there is no difference.
As for Mahi, he will return back to competitive cricket with the 2021 edition of the T20 extravaganza which is scheduled from April 9 to May 30 across six cities. Mumbai Indians (MI) will be locking horns against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the inaugural game.
