MS Dhoni celebrated his 42nd birthday earlier this month, and he shared a video of his birthday celebrations with his dogs, breaking his nearly five-month-long social media hiatus.

In response to their unwavering support, MS Dhoni promised to return for the next IPL season, offering a heartfelt return gift to his adoring fans.
