Former Indian captain MS Dhoni, known for his cricketing brilliance, was recently spotted cruising the streets of Ranchi in a classic Pontiac Firebird (1973). The 42-year-old cricket legend is currently recovering from a knee surgery he underwent after the conclusion of IPL 2023. During IPL 2023, Dhoni showcased remarkable leadership, guiding the relatively-inexperienced Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to a record fifth championship victory. They secured a resounding triumph over the defending champions, Gujarat Titans (GT), in the final.
A Twitter user shared an enchanting video capturing Dhoni’s love for vintage cars, where he can be seen driving the Pontiac Firebird, along with the caption “MS Dhoni and his love for vintage cars!! 🥵💥”

Another video surfaced recently, showing MS Dhoni driving a splendid blue Rolls Royce 1980. The viral video had the 42-year-old legend driving the classic car with a fan on a bike riding alongside him, recording the memorable moment.
Besides MS Dhoni, the car accommodated two more individuals. While Dhoni has always expressed his fondness for bikes, the video revealed an unexpected soft spot in his heart for vintage automobiles as well.
After a grueling two-month-long IPL season, the “Captain Cool” underwent knee surgery and has since been enjoying quality family time in Ranchi. MS Dhoni retired from international cricket on August 15, 2020, but he continues to participate in the IPL. He led the Chennai Super Kings to championship victories in 2021 and 2023.
There have been intriguing hints suggesting that the legendary cricketer might contemplate a return to the IPL in 2024, provided his successful recovery from the recent knee surgery. Fans will be hoping for his complete recovery and eagerly await his potential comeback on the cricket field.
