During the commentary, legendary Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist referred to MS Dhoni’s ‘Prime Sports’ bat sticker as “just a local store”, sparking discussion about its sentimental value.

As the countdown to IPL 2024 begins, MS Dhoni, the iconic Chennai Super Kings captain, has started his training regimen in the nets, sparking excitement among fans. However, this time, it was not Dhoni’s on-field skills but rather his cricket bat that stole the spotlight.

A recent image of Dhoni practicing with a ‘Prime Sports’ sticker garnered significant attention, serving as a touching tribute to his childhood friend Paramjit Singh, whose sports company shares the same name.
Paramjit played a crucial part in Dhoni’s cricketing journey, even securing his first bat sponsorship. This gesture resonated deeply, especially given its portrayal in Dhoni’s biopic, ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.’

During commentary for the 2nd T20I between Australia and West Indies, legendary wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist casually referred to Prime Sports as ‘just a local store’.

The discussion shifted to MS Dhoni when Michael Hussey mentioned the upcoming IPL 2024. Gilchrist noted Dhoni’s return to practice and the new bat sticker, attributing it to a schoolmate’s sports store.

“Got to reach India 10 days before the tournament starts. March, maybe 11th of March we are heading off. Looking forward to it. Great tournament, really is. Best players from all around the world. Best Indian players playing… it’s incredible. The crowds are unbelievable, the noise they make. The atmosphere in the ground. And MS Dhoni is back. He’s hitting balls in the nets already I reckon,” Hussey said.

“I saw him hitting some balls in the nets, MS Dhoni. There’s a new bat sticker on his bat. Just a local sports store of one of his schoolmates. Whack the company name on your bat just to give a boost to sales,” Gilchrist chipped in. His description seemingly overlooked the emotional significance behind Dhoni’s decision.
