Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings were symbolic to each other in the cash-rich tournament, Indian Premier League right from the inaugural days. We saw Indian cricketer’s wife Sakshi Dhoni cheering the CSK team from the sidelines. But scenario changed with Dhoni joining Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016 after the Chennai team was banned from IPL for two years. But lately, Mrs MS Dhoni took to Instagram and shared a picture where she is seen wearing the CSK team jersey. What prompted her to do so? Well, it looks like Sakshi donned the yellow jersey to avenge the recent insult of her husband at the hands of RPS owner Harsh Goenka openly on Twitter. The beautiful and feisty Sakshi also Instagrammed another picture reminding about the cycle of ‘Karma’! MS Dhoni fans shuts down Rising Pune Supergiant owner Harsh Goenka for his controversial tweet calling Steven Smith a better captain!
It will be safe to call MS Dhoni the coolest minds in the history of the cricketing world. The man does not engage in heated war of words but chooses to either let his work speak or let his wit beat the odds. But his better half, Sakshi Dhoni does not shy away from calling a spade, a spade. Recently, after Pune’s first win in VIVO IPL 2017 Harsh Goenka, the chairman of RPG Enterprises and brother of RPS owner Sanjiv Goenka went all out to appreciate their new captain, Steven Smith of Australia. While praising is a great thing to do, the business tycoon went on to compare him with Dhoni and in fact called Steve a better captain over India’s biggest ambassador of the game.
Harsh Goenka had posted on Twitter after Rising Pune Supergiant’s win over Mumbai Indians: “#RPSvMI Smith proves who’s the king of the jungle. Overshadows Dhoni totally. Captains innings. Great move to appoint him as captain.” This did not go down well with not just Dhoni’s fans but Indian cricket fans in general. The man tried to do the damage control by deleting the controversial post and also explain that he respected Dhoni but was praising Steven Smith’s performance on that particular day. Well, the social media was irked by Goenka and RPS franchise by then, and now Sakshi Dhoni’s recent potshots are confirming all is not well between star Indian cricketer and his current IPL team. Harsh Goenka definitely not learn his lessons from the first trolling session as he posted another tweet, writing, “#RPS batting statistics until now – Manoj Tiwari, Rahane, Christian have the best strike rates,” after RPS’ defeat against Kings XI Punjab.
Sakshi posted a picture from Dhoni’s days as Chennai Super Kings team captain. The famous photo of the cricketer’s wife wearing his helmet and taking a selfie was captioned: #throwback !! Well, we all know what made Sakshi miss the yellow jersey team so badly. The poor behaviour by RPS owner’s brother has definitely triggered a sense of alienation, and it can be easily sensed with the photo. Not the one to mince words, Sakshi posted another photo which talks about the functioning of Karma! Wow, we are in love with MS Dhoni’s style of slaying haters like there is no tomorrow.
We have seen more of Sakshi Dhoni’s daring defence of her husband in the recent times. When MS Dhoni’s Aadhaar card details were leaked online, she did not hold it back in complaining to Union Law & Justice and Information Technology Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad. She was irked at making her husband’s personal info shared on the internet and not hesitate in going strong with words to the BJP leader. Well, keep slaying the world Sakshi Dhoni!
