The aura surrounding MS Dhoni is more than just cricket; it is an emotion that unites fans under the banner of Chennai Super Kings. Known for his composed demeanor and exceptional leadership on the field, Dhoni's presence in Dubai became a focal point of excitement, with fans expressing their unwavering support for the man who has been instrumental in CSK's numerous triumphs.

Earlier today, another video of Dhoni playing a game of pickleball in a floating court in Dubai with Delhi Capitals' Rishabh Pant also went viral. Pant took center stage alongside the Delhi Capitals' top brass, including head coach Ricky Ponting and Director of Cricket Sourav Ganguly during Tuesday's IPL auction. This marked a significant public appearance for Pant since his last sighting during an IPL 2023 match, as the young wicketkeeper recovers from injuries sustained in a life-threatening road accident in December 2022.

In the video, the duo engaged in a friendly match at an indoor court, with Pant earning cheers for a spectacular overhead smash that caught Dhoni by surprise.

The bond between Pant and Dhoni goes beyond the pickleball court, as evidenced by their recent get-togethers during Diwali celebrations and dinner at Dhoni's home, where they were joined by Suresh Raina and RP Singh. Sakshi Singh Dhoni shared lively photos from these festive gatherings, beautifully encapsulating the joyous spirit of the festivities.
