Dhoni fans say #TakeTheWinningStroke and Break The Beard
Last week, saw Dhoni’s full-grown bearded face doing the rounds in the media, with friends, fans and family all talking about the cricketer in his new look. From Cricket Pandit Ayaz Memom to Dhoni’s mother all were seen defending the cricketer’s look, given that he isn’t so old, yet sporting a grey beard.
While the country loves Dhoni and his game on-field, fans are stunned and quite unhappy with this quarantine look. While many cricketers are seen grooming themselves during quarantine, Dhoni is seen doing quite the opposite. His grey beard is only being seen as adding fuel to the stories already doing the rounds, that Dhoni should retire. But his fans won’t let that happen anytime soon. They all want to bring their Mahi magic back, which starts with getting that shave. All popular Dhoni fan pages saw posts appealing to Dhoni.
Dhoni fans have started a movement on Instagram and Twitter by passing the message from one fan to another, hoping it reaches Captain cool for him to #TakeTheWinningStroke and Break His Beard. Scroll through some of the requests below:

This is not a Usual post, also not an appreciation post. This is my request, from a passionate fan to my greatest idol. Mahi, you have no idea how big a fan I am. I breathe just to see you play. Through every high and every low I feel like I’ve been right there with you. So, when I hear people say “You’re old, you look tired, You should retire” after your recent pic surfaced on social media, I feel very sad. I feel hurt when they say that about you. To me and a whole lot of your fans, you will always be the best Captain of India, the best Cricketer in the world. So let’s shut them up, the ones who doubt you. Once and for all. And let that start with giving us back our handsome Captain cool. Mahi, please please please shave off that beard and silence the haters. Mahi *Take The Winning Stroke* Friends, let's trend #TakeTheWinningStroke so that it reaches @mahi7781 and he comes with a clean-shaven look. #BreakTheBeard, Mahi! . . . #Dhoni #MSDhoni #MSD #Mahi
In this gentleman's game, you're the most gentleman player I have ever come across. Please be that @msdhoni again! Shave off and Take The Winning Stroke.— Ramesh Bala (@rameshlaus) May 20, 2020
