An old video featuring Sakshi Dhoni, wife of cricket legend MS Dhoni, has resurfaced, captivating cricket enthusiasts worldwide. Renowned for his iconic status in the cricketing world, MS Dhoni continues to command an unparalleled fan following long after his retirement from international cricket and relinquishing Chennai Super Kings' captaincy.

Reflecting on pivotal moments in their journey together, Sakshi fondly recalls conversations with Dhoni about the prospect of starting a family amid his illustrious cricketing career. "When he stepped down from Test cricket, we always had a hint that he is going to step down," she reveals in the video.

Sharing intimate insights into their life, Sakshi emphasizes the mutual respect and understanding that underpins their relationship, transcending the sacrifices often associated with being a cricketer's spouse.
