IPL 2021: The mystery regarding MS Dhoni’s special appearance of monk finally ended on Sunday as Star Sports released the official promotion of the Indian Premier League. In the video, the ‘cool and calm’ headed CSK skipper can be seen as a spiritual guru. He can be seen telling the students it’s okay to have anger if it helps you succeed, citing Kohli’s example. Similarly, he also spoke ‘greed is also cool’ if it helps you win titles, – Rohit Sharma-led MI’s example.
The students were keen to know if Mumbai Indians (MI) will score a hat-trick of IPL wins to which Dhoni replied ‘ye to waqt hi batayega (only time will tell).”
The tune ends with an IPL theme. The T20 league will begin on March 9 with Virat Kohli-led RCB locking horns against defending champions MI.
Earlier on Sunday, Dhoni’s monk look donning sky blue attire went viral on social media. The picture was shared by the official broadcaster of Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) Star Sports. Take a look at some of the viral reactions by Twitterati
