Former Indian captain MS Dhoni turned 40 on Wednesday and wishes began to flow in for him from all corners of the world.
“Mahendra – which means Lord of the Sky. Definitely the sky with his big hit when he fell on the scene, and then also pleased the earth by earning the love of so many people on earth. Once in a generation #HappyBirthdayMSDhoni player, ” tweeted ex-India opener Virender Sehwag.

Mahi will lead Chennai Super Kings (CSK) again. After their under-run last year, the Yellow Army made a spectacular comeback under Dhoni’s leadership in IPL 2021 and were placed in second place in the standings with 5 wins from 7 matches.
Here’s how other former and current cricketers wished MS Dhoni on social media:

Time flies by? It looked as if Dhoni had won the World Cup by six yesterday. He was then thirty, today he turns 40. Still hitting sixes, still with his example. #HappyBirthdayMahi
