Is MS Dhoni time-travelling nowadays? Hardik Pandya wonders
Hardik Pandya is the new-generation all-rounder of Team India, helping the side scale new heights. Pandya had made his debut under MS Dhoni, as the latter is now retired from international cricket. Nonetheless, Dhoni continues to feature in the Indian Premier League.
Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya has taken Indian cricket to a greater height, thanks to his blazing all-round skills. Besides Team India, he has also made a severe impact playing in the Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians.
Pandya made a name for himself, mainly for his atomic batting, having made his debut under MS Dhoni. While the latter is now retired from international cricket, Pandya continues to carry on the learning he has derived from the legend to date.
As both play for different teams in the IPL, Pandya likes to take up the fight to Dhoni at times, with his outstanding fast-bowling skills. Nonetheless, he seems to be missing playing alongside the legend.

Recently, Pandya took to his social media to share a picture of Dhoni, where the latter is seen sitting on a vintage wooden chair and having a conversation with someone sitting in front of him.
Although it is difficult to judge who the other person is, it seems like a throwback picture, with Dhoni having a conversation with late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, as the latter played the role of Dhoni in his biography, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. Meanwhile, Pandya captioned the picture, "@mahi7781, Kya Mahi bhai time-travelling bhi karne lage ho kya? 😂😂", which translates to "Have you started doing time-travelling too, Mahi brother?"
Dhoni is gearing up to lead Chennai Super Kings for the record 12th time in IPL 2021. Being a three-time champion, his side had a tough outing last season, having finished seventh in the table and failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time.
Pandya would look to continue his glorious stint with MI, being the record five-time defending champion. Meanwhile, MI would again be led by its most successful skipper Rohit Sharma, under whom it has won all the five.
