Courtesy his association with Chennai Super Kings, Dhoni has a huge fan base in the state. The CSK fans refer him as Thala i.e. Leader. Dhoni has been captaining the Chennai-based franchise since 2008. Under him, CSK have made it to the second round every time they have been part of the league.
Even the West Indies and CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is planning something special for Mahender Singh Dhoni on his birthday. Bravo is currently working on special song for his IPL teammate and skipper and he will present the same to him on his birthday.
Dhoni has not played international cricket for India since the 2019 World Cup semi-final, is the only captain in the history of the game to win all ICC trophies. Under his captaincy, India won the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, the 2010 and 2016 Asia Cups, the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, and the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy
