With the IPL mini auction set to be held on December 19, Dhoni will make a call on playing yet another IPL season for CSK. As usual, the wicketkeeper-batter is keeping his cards close to his heart and has said he will disclose the decision only before the mini-auction.
MS Dhoni Uttarakhand Connection
Many people don’t know this but MS Dhoni ancestral home is in Uttarakhand.
The village of Lwali, where Dhoni’s father Pan Singh departed in the 1970s to work in a steel mill in Ranchi, is still undeveloped and is home to his family. The community, which is around 75 kilometers from the Almora district headquarters, has experienced migration due to a lack of infrastructure.
