ms dhoni and robin uthappa friendship: ms dhoni and robin uthappa friendship ki kahani: mahendra singh dhoni and robin uthappa friendship story

Pune: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is Mahi bhai to fellow players. Dhoni has made a special place in Indian cricket, so most of the players of Chennai Super Kings and juniors of Team India also call him Mahi Bhai. But this situation is a bit strange for Chennai Super Kings batsman Robin Uthappa. It is a bit challenging for him to call his friend ‘Mahi Bhai’.

Speaking on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel, Uthappa said that he had spoken to Dhoni about his dilemma. The wicket-keeper batsman said that the former Indian captain had told him that he could call him by his own name.

Uthappa said, “Today, it is very difficult for me to call him Mahi bhai. Since the time I’ve known him, he was Mahi, MS. I played with him after about 10-12 or 13 years. So I asked, what shall I say friend? Actually, I don’t know. Shall I call you mahi bhai? Because everyone around is calling you by this name. So he said, call me MS or Mahi or Jo your heart.’

Uthappa also recalled his first meeting with Dhoni in 2004. He said that cricketer-turned-coach Sridharan Sriram had introduced him to Dhoni.

Uthappa said, ‘I met Dhoni for the first time in 2004. I played my first Challengers Trophy then. It was in Mumbai. Sreedharan Sriram was there during the series and it was nice to be with him. Mr. Bhai was very close to Dhoni, he used to get along very well. I met MS through him and then we started hanging out together. But that meeting was a short one.

The right-handed batsman told that his true friendship with Dhoni happened during the West Indies tour. This was his first tour with the Indian team. He became friends with MS Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh and Piyush Chawla on the same tour.

He said, ‘I went with the team on the West Indies tour. This was my first overseas tour with India. I made my debut. MS and I became great friends. I didn’t play many matches and sat on the bench most of the time. MS was playing but we spent a lot of time together and we became very close. MS, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh and Piyush Chawla, we all used to hang out together. Naan and dal were buttermilk in our daily diet. RP loved jeera aloo and Irfan liked butter chicken.
