Reportedly Punjab captain Mandeep still remembers the day when India's most legendary captain ms dhoni made all sorts of efforts to make his wedding day a 'memorable' one. Three separate flights and 2-hour of intense drive in chilling cold is what ms dhoni had to undergo to make it to Mandeep Singh's wedding. The Kings XI punjab batsman was taken by surprise because dhoni had hinted him that he might not be able to make it to his nuptial ceremony.
"My wedding was in december 2016, I invited mahi bhai. He didn't tell me whether he would come, he said he needed to go to New York. But he came to my wedding and surprised me. For him to take time away from his busy schedule and come, it was a memorable moment for me," Mandeep Singh told Spotskeeda. From ranchi to delhi to amritsar is three separate flights and then he had to take a two hour drive during the harsh fog and biting cold at that time. He took so much effort to come even though I had played only a few matches with him. That's his simplicity, that's his greatness," the punjab cricketer added.
During the ceremony dhoni had also revealed to Mandeep that he surprised suresh raina and Ishant Sharma at their wedding in a similar fashion.Mandeep Singh also talked about his maiden india call-up in a series against zimbabwe in 2016. The 28 year old said 'it was a dream come true'. Mandeep also talked about his experience of spending time with MS Dhoni. He said "I can't describe how it was in words. It was a dream come true. mahi bhai is very down to earth. We used to play PS together. He doesn't show off his status or that he is a legendary cricketer. I remember he would always eat with me, we would order desi food like biryani, sit down and eat. It was great to spend time with him".
