CHENNAI: The common perception might be that Mahendra Singh Dhoni does not show a lot of emotion on the field and is 'Captain Cool'. But on Sunday, the iconic former India captain's wife Sakshi said that Dhoni is always emotional about the game as it is his love.
While talking about Dhoni getting emotional after leading Chennai Super Kings to their third Indian Premier League title in 2018, Sakshi said during an Instagram Live chat on CSK's official handle: "Mahi is always emotional about cricket. It's his love."
Rajasthan Royals (RR) along with CSK were making a comeback to the IPL after a two-year ban.
Sakshi also revealed how the avid gamer in Dhoni helps the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman relax.
"Video games are a stress buster for him. He has a thinking brain which doesn't rest. So video games help him and he is now too much into Call Of Duty and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)."
Sakshi also joked that only she can pick up a fight with ice-cool Dhoni who last turned out for India during their loss to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semi-final. IANS
