Former India captain MS Dhoni turned 40 on Wednesday and wishes started pouring in for him from all corners of the world.
“Mahendra – meaning Lord of the Sky. Certainly pleased the skies with his big hitting when he bust onto the scene and then by earning the love of so many people on earth pleased the earth as well. Once in a generation player #HappyBirthdayMSDhoni,” tweeted ex-India opener Virender Sehwag.

One of the most successful captains in world cricket, Dhoni is currently enjoying the break from cricket with his family. He will next hit the field in September during the IPL 2021.

Mahi will be leading Chennai Super Kings (CSK) once again. After their below-par run last year, the Yellow Army made a spectacular comeback under Dhoni’s leadership in IPL 2021 and were placed at the second spot in the points table with 5 wins from 7 matches.
Here’s how other former and current cricketers wished MS Dhoni on social media:
Happy birthday @msdhoni bhai, have a wonderful birthday and an even better year ahead. 🎂🎂

How time flies? It seemed just yesterday that Dhoni hit the World Cup winning six. He was 30 then, today he turns 40. Still hitting sixes, still leading by example. #HappyBirthdayMahi
