MS Dhoni has had a difficult IPL 10 season with the bat but is still one of the most in demand players in the league.
Dhoni may be well past his prime time, as is seen from his dismal run with the bat in the ongoing tenth edition of the IPL, but the former Indian captain remains one of the biggest stars of Rising Pune Super Giant (RPS) and the Indian cricket team. His wicket keeping skills are still top notch which makes him indispensable in the starting line up antime. His popularity is such that even when he is not playing well or not in good form, he is one of the most in demand cricketers in the world.
This is evident from what Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan had to say about buying Dhoni for his team.
“Yaar main toh usko apna Pyjama bech ke bhi kharid lun, wo aaye toh auction mein (I’m ready to sell my pyjama for buying MS Dhoni but that can happen only when he is available for auction right?),” Shah Rukh is quoted as saying by Sporstwallah.
King Khan may have his chance next season when the contracts of all players playing are up for renewal. Former indian captain Dhoni may have had a patchy season with the bat but he seems to have found the finishing touch of old when Rising Pune Supergiant beat Sunrisers Hyderabad.
