As preparations for the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League kick-off, MS Dhoni, the stalwart of the Chennai Super Kings, has taken centre stage. The internet is abuzz with love for every moment of Dhoni’s practice sessions – from the familiar sight of Captain Cool donning his trademark yellow jersey to the vintage long locks swaying with each masterful stroke, it’s a dreamlike experience for the ‘Yellove’ army.

Yet, what truly stood out this time was not Dhoni’s impeccable batting but a seemingly small yet profoundly significant detail on his bat – a ‘Prime Sports’ sticker. Last week, a photo of Dhoni practising with this new addition sent social media into a frenzy. Unbeknownst to fans, it was a heartfelt tribute from the cricketing legend to his childhood friend Paramjit Singh, the owner of the sports company bearing the same name.

Paramjit Singh holds a special place in Dhoni’s journey, intricately portrayed in the cricketer’s biopic, ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.’ Singh was pivotal in securing Dhoni’s first bat sponsorship, elevating this sticker beyond a mere endorsement to a poignant nod to their shared history.

In an unexpected twist, Adam Gilchrist, the legendary Australian wicketkeeper, offered his perspective on the matter during a commentary session, referring to Prime Sports as ‘just a local store.’ In doing so, Gilchrist seemed to miss the sentimental value embedded in Dhoni’s choice.

 

As the excitement builds for IPL 2024, fans are gearing up for another season of cricketing extravaganza, with the added drama of witnessing Dhoni’s anticipated final hurrah on the field. The stage is set for a spectacle that promises not just thrilling cricket but also heartfelt moments that transcend the boundaries of the sport.
