Pakistan cricketer Haris Rauf who has been exceptional lately in the recent editions of Australia’s Big Bash League, has received a signed CSK jersey by Chennai Super Kings captain and Indian cricket legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Haris Rauf had earlier said many times that he is a big MS Dhoni fan and the former Indian captain has finally fulfilled the wish of his neighbour.
It is however not the first time that Haris Rauf has been spotted on social media receiving jerseys from celebrity cricketers. Earlier during the T20 World Cup, Haris Rauf was spotted exchanging his jersey with his Melbourne Stars (BBL team) teammate Glen Maxwell; Haris Rauf gave Maxwell his Pakistan jersey and received Maxi’s Australia jersey instead. It was a beautiful moment of sportsmanship that became viral in no time.
Haris Rauf is overwhelmed on receiving Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s jersey. He himself clicked a picture of the jersey and posted it on his twitter handle with a beautiful caption.
He wrote, “The legend & capt cool @msdhoni has honored me with this beautiful gift, his shirt. The “7” still winning hearts through his kind & goodwill gestures. @russcsk specially Thank you so much for kind support.”
It is not the first time that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has given away signed jerseys to celebrities. In fact, he was doing this quite a lot during the first lockdown when he had a lot of spare time. Many Bollywood and media stars received jerseys from Mahi back then as well.
