Robin Uthappa Reveals Dhoni's Brutal Honesty Before IPL 2021

Former Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa has revealed an interesting incident that occurred during his stint with the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. Uthappa, who played a crucial role in CSK's victory in the 2021 season, spoke about his conversation with the legendary MSD - Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

According to Uthappa, Dhoni is a very open person who speaks his mind, even if it hurts. Uthappa revealed that when he was signed by CSK in the auction, Dhoni called him and said that he was not sure if Uthappa would get a chance to play because the season was still far away and he hadn't given it any thought. Despite Uthappa's successful 13-year stint in the IPL, Dhoni was honest about his chances of playing and did not hesitate to convey the same.

Uthappa also spoke about an incident in the first season when he saw everyone in the squad calling Dhoni "Mahi bhai." Unsure of what to call him, Uthappa approached Dhoni and asked if he should call him the same. Dhoni, known for his no-nonsense attitude, dismissed the question and told Uthappa to call him whatever he wanted, as it made no difference to him. However, he did request Uthappa to address him as "Mahi" only.

These incidents shed light on Dhoni's personality as a captain and a teammate. While he is known for his calm and composed demeanor on the field, off the field, he is a very open and honest person who speaks his mind. He also values mutual respect and does not enforce a strict hierarchy within the team.

As the IPL 2023 approaches, fans eagerly await the return of Dhoni and CSK, one of the most successful teams in the league's history. With Uthappa's revelations, fans have gained a deeper insight into the team's dynamics and the captain's personality. It highlights the importance of honesty and mutual respect in building successful teams, both on and off the field.
