MS Dhoni is not just one of the best cricketers and captains India has ever produced, he is also probably one of the biggest superstars in the country at the moment despite the fact that he retired from international cricket two years ago.
For the third season straight, the broadcasters of the Indian Premier League (IPL) have casted Dhoni in the promo of the league. The teaser of the promo was released by Star Sports yesterday and the fans are quite excited about it already.
MS Dhoni can be seen in the khaaki costume and while the entire plot of the promo is not released yet, the fans are anticipating that Dhoni is perhaps performing the role of a bus conductor or a bus driver.
Generally, the promos of IPL over the years have been featuring almost all the star players of the Indian team, but for the last three years, it’s generally Dhoni featuring in the promos. One of the main reasons behind it is that some of the regular Indian stars have been with the national team and in the bio bubble when the last three promos have been shot.
MS Dhoni had featured as a monk in the last IPL promo
In the last IPL promo that was shot in March 2021, Dhoni had performed the role of a monk and a hostel warden. The popularity that the former Indian captain enjoys all across the country, it ensures the promo of the league attracts the fans a lot even if he is casted solo in the promo.
As the T20I series between India and Sri Lanka gets over today, the broadcasters are expected to release the full IPL promo featuring Dhoni soon and the fans are waiting for it. Meanwhile, Dhoni will be on his way to Surat to attend the CSK training camp next week, as he gears up to lead CSK in the IPL for another season.

To be honest Dhoni doesn't looks good in this outfit. I think the way Star Sports made promo for IPL 2018 they should try something related to it again.Advertisement
