MS Dhoni, the former captain of the Indian cricket team is not just a cricketer but an inspiration for millions of people around the world. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain is famously known as ‘Captain Cool’ for this very reason. He rarely lets emotions get the better of him, no matter how tensed the situation on field.
However, one of Dhoni’s former India and CSK teammates Harbbhajan Singh has now shared an unheard story involving Dhoni. He talked about a rare instance of Dhoni getting emotional and crying even when he was surrounded by his teammates.

“Back in 2018, when CSK made a comeback to this league after a two-year ban there was a team dinner. We must have heard the saying that ‘Men don’t cry’, but MS Dhoni cried on that night. He became emotional. I think no one knows about this,” Harbhajan said.
“Yes, of course,” Tahir said.
“Even I was there. It was a very emotional moment for him (MS Dhoni). Looking at him like that, I came to know how close this team is to his heart. He considers the team as his family. It was very emotional for all of us,” the South African cricket star added.
“We came back after 2 years and won the trophy. And when people give your team the tag of ‘buddhe’ (old men), and even I was in the squad that season, but we won the title. I am very proud of that victory,” he stated.
