IPL 2020 Fever has begun! The much-delayed game has picked up momentum and got real since Indian cricketers started posting pictures of them packing at the airport, or practising for the much-anticipated game. As all the cricketers have dashed off to UAE to play IPL 2020. Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals arrived in the Arab Country on Thursday, while Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings too boarded their flight on Friday. Recently, following the new norms, Pandya brother – Krunal and Hardik – and Rohit Sharma along with wife Ritika Sajdeh and daughter Samaira were seen sporting the PPE Kit while posing at the airport.
But amidst the ongoing IPL craze, an old video of Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni speaking to the current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly during India's tour of Australia in 2011-12, is going viral. And the reason for video doing the rounds on social media will leave you in splits. Dhoni was interviewed by Ganguly after Indian lost the second Test in Sydney by an innings and 68 runs. It was towards the end of the same interview when Dhoni had concluded it by calling Sourav ‘Dadi.’ Well, yes it happened!
In a post-interview match, MS Dhoni had sheepishly said to Sourav Ganguly, ‘Thanks Dadi.’ Sourav Ganguly has always been known for his nickname, ‘Dada’ on and off the field.
Meanwhile, after announcing his retirement, MS Dhoni had shared Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s letter to him. Sharing the 2-page letter, Dhoni thanked the PM for appreciation and good wishes.
