He was on a sabbatical from international cricket until he announced his retirement from top-level cricket on 15th August 2020.
However, Dhoni will keep on playing IPL and his fans are excited to see their favourite player take on the field after long wait. Ahead of the clash against MI, Dhoni fans had even trended a hashtag on Twitter, called ‘WelcomeBackDhoni’, marking his return on the cricket field.
Here’s a look at some of the Tweets:
