Adam Gilchrist Responds On MS Dhoni’s New Bat Sticker

Adam Gilchrist Responds On MS Dhoni’s New Bat Sticker

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 is quickly approaching, and many are eagerly looking forward to watching MS Dhoni lead the Chennai Super Kings to a record-tying sixth championship. The former captain of the Indian cricket team has already begun training, and cricket fans have taken notice of the sticker on his bat in a recent video. The “Prime Sports” sticker on Dhoni’s bat belonged to his pal Paramjit Singh’s Ranchi store. The decal generated a lot of discussion among supporters, and it has since been mentioned by the late Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist on the radio.

Even though the IPL 2024 is still over a month away, the competition has already gained momentum because of none other than MS Dhoni. Similar to Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, for whom this season of the Indian Premier League looks to be his final, has begun practicing in the nets with his classic long locks. This is enough to throw the internet community into a full breakdown. Dhoni, dressed in yellow, was in full flow with his bat and pads. It’s what dreams are made of, at least for those in the ‘Yellove’ army.

But for the first time, Dhoni’s bat garnered greater media attention than the player. A photo of Dhoni working out while sporting a brand-new “Prime Sports” sticker went viral last week. It was an homage by the renowned Indian cricketer MS Dhoni to his childhood friend Paramjit Singh, who runs a sports company of the same name. This fact is wonderfully and comprehensively recorded in the film.

As Dhoni’s cricket career drew to a close, he used the sticker as a touching farewell to Paramjit, who was instrumental in helping him along the way and helped get MSD’s first bat sponsor. It’s not surprising that Dhoni, who has a great heart, would do something so sweet as he participated in the World Cup in 2019 before making his farewell appearance for India.

However, Adam Gilchrist’s response to the entire development is a bit unexpected. During the second Twenty20 International between Australia and the West Indies, the renowned Australian wicketkeeper was describing Prime Sports as “just a local store.”

When Michael Hussey brought up the IPL 2024 launch, the conversation regarding Dhoni got underway.

Is the IPL kicking off on March 22nd?

He remarked, “You have to get to India ten days before the competition commences. March, possibly the eleventh, is when we are leaving. Anticipating it with excitement. Excellent competition, it’s true. top players from throughout the globe. The best Indian players are performing; it’s amazing. The environment beneath the surface. MS. Dhoni is also back. I believe he’s already hitting balls in the net.” 

Gilchrist then took over and brought up the subject of the bat stickers. “MS Dhoni, I watched him hit several balls in the nets. His bat has a fresh bat sticker on it. Just a friend of his from the school’s local sports store. Just to increase sales, whack the firm name on your bat,” he said.

This signifies the completion of a circle, in a sense. Dhoni had stated at the beginning of his career that he had modeled his batting after the devastating Gilchrist, the great Australian being one of his idols. Gilchrist’s remarks regarding Dhoni’s excellence serve as the ideal coda to the tale, given that one player has been retired for a long time and the other is almost ready to ride into the sunset.
