Will MS Dhoni play another innings in his life? If sources are to be believed, Dhoni would soon call it a day in cricket and join politics. He is set to contest on BJP ticket from Ranchi constituency. This will not just give a boost to the BJP in the state of Jharkhand, but also would boost the prospects of the BJP among the youths.
It may be recalled that BJP national president Amit Shah has recently met MS Dhoni at his residence as part of the party's Sampark Se Samardhan programme. It was then that the idea of Dhoni contesting elections was born. Dhoni too gave his nod and agreed to contest the elections.
If the BJP sources are to be believed, not just Dhoni but even swashbuckling Delhi cricketer Gowtam Gambhir too might contest on BJP ticket from Delhi. He is likely to replace MP Meenakshi Lekhi, whose popularity graph is on the downslide. Gowtam Gambhir has been very vocal in supporting Indian military and security forces and has strongly opposed the terrorists and those supporting them. Thus. Both these cricketers will play a different innings now.
