On the 10th anniversary of Team India’s triumph in the 2011 World Cup, an emotional video of MS Dhoni has surfaced on the internet. The video seems to be a commercial made by Gulf Oil, a company that has been closely associated with the former Indian captain. The commercial has a unique concept in which they show an interaction between the young Dhoni of 2005 and his current version.

MS Dhoni talking with his younger self

On one side, we see MS Dhoni can be seen donning his iconic long hairs from 2005, while on the other side, we see the captain with his current look. During the interaction, the 2021 MS showered praises on his younger self. His arrival at the international cricket was absolutely magnificent. He played a fiery knock of 148 against Pakistan in only his fifth ODI in 2005. Later that year, while batting at no.3, he managed to register his highest ODI score of 183 not out against Sri Lanka.

There is a brief moment where the 2021 Dhoni mentions his highest ODI score in the commercial. He further tells to his younger self that there could be times in the future that he would have to bat lower down the order to take responsibilities. Earlier during his career, MS burst out on the scene with centuries at top of the order, but later on, had to come down the order in order to finish the games for India. 

During the interaction, the younger Dhoni asks his older self which has been his favorite knock. To which the 2021 Dhoni replies, “It has to be the World Cup finals. To hit that six and finish off the match was an outstanding experience.” This is also when the 2005 Dhoni realizes that India managed to win the 2011 World Cup and lift the trophy at the Wankhede in Mumbai.
