Things look as good on the personal front. Just recently on July 4, Dhoni celebrated his first marriage anniversary with wife Sakshi. The marriage is going strong and the couple looks very much in love, with Sakshi accompanying Dhoni to many of his matches and tours. His stock in the ad world is also high and rocketing.
And while he may be turning 30, there are no signs of him slowing down despite the the overload of cricket. He in fact, looks set to enjoy at least another couple of years at the top. Here's wishing the skipper lots more luck and success on his birthday.
