MS Dhoni is not just another Indian player, he's the embodiment of the sport for an entire generation of cricket fans in our country.
But his presence can still be felt despite him not being there.
Sitting just beside the reserved corner seat, Chahal touched an emotional chord and said:
Yeh woh seat hai jaha ek legend baithte they, Mahi bhai [MS Dhoni]. Abhi bhi yaha koi nahi baithta. Hum unhe bohot miss karte hain.
"This is the seat where a legend used to sit, Mahi bhai. No one sits here now. We all miss him a lot." - Chahal on MSDhoni corner seat #MSDhoni #Mahi #Dhoni #NZvIND @BleedDhonism @msdfansofficial @DHONIism pic.twitter.com/ZyUJRbDuka— Mahirat 🤹 (@GOATKingKohli) January 28, 2020
After keeping fans in the shadows about his retirement MS Dhoni was recently dropped from the BCCI's list of centrally contracted players, raising fresh doubts on the future of the former India captain.
