Anyway, this one's special because our thala and his darling wife, Sakshi have completed ten blissful years of marriage on July 4, 2020. Time flies so fast. It seems yesterday's news only when they had gotten married in 2010, and since it was a secret wedding, no one had known about it beforehand. The newspapers were full of stories covering different functions of his grand wedding, as social media was not as active as today. Everyone was curious to know about the mystery girl who had bowled over the best finisher of our generation! It turned out that their fate was entangled with each other back when they were kids, only they had gotten to know about it when they had met each other again after so many years.

Since, Sakshi's family got shifted to Dehradun, the two could not stay in touch after that. Destiny had brought them together after almost a decade, miles away from their home, in the 'City of Joy', Kolkata. Dhoni and Sakshi had incidentally met each other at the Taj Bengal, during Team India's stay in November-December, 2007. By that time, Dhoni had become a renowned cricketer. Sakshi Rawat, who was an intern working at Taj Bengal, was introduced to MS Dhoni by his manager, Yudhajit Dutta. Sakshi was friends with Yudhajit. It was as if they were destined to be together because that day was the last working day of Sakshi's internship at the hotel. When Sakshi had left, Dhoni had asked Dutta for her number and texted her. And the rest is history!
