One of the most successful captains in the history of international cricket, MS Dhoni turned 40 on Wednesday. Amid the load of wishes that the star cricketer received, the one that caught the eye came from the International Cricket Council (ICC). The organisation wished the legendary cricketer in a total filmy style. A video shared on ICC's Twitter account has the federation wishing Dhoni birthday with a splash of American actor Clinton Eastwood. The ICC compiled all snippets of the Indian cricketer’s iconic moments on the cricket field and played them with the theme music of Clinton’s movie, Man With No Name, as the background music.
In their tweet, they mentioned the cricketer being one of the sharpest keepers in the world, as he knocked off players from the field with his quick reflexes. Their tweet read, “Only for a fraction of a second and Dhoni, like lightning, had those bails off. Happy birthday to one of the sharpest keepers in cricket history.” We totally agree!
