MS Dhoni’s bat adorned with the label ‘Prime Sports,’ owned by his childhood friend Paramjit Singh, evoked a heartwarming reaction from Singh.

As the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) approaches, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni has kicked off his preparations, drawing attention not only for his intense training sessions but also for the new sticker on his bat. The label, displaying ‘Prime Sports,’ belongs to a shop in Ranchi owned by Dhoni’s childhood friend Paramjit Singh.

Singh, who played a pivotal role in securing sponsors for Dhoni’s cricketing equipment early in his career, was deeply touched by this gesture. Dhoni’s choice to showcase ‘Prime Sports’ on his bat was a heartfelt tribute to their friendship, depicted in the film ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story.’

Expressing his pride, Singh shared that Dhoni gifted him an autographed bat with a heartfelt message, “Best Wishes, Chottu Bhaiyya.”

“I am feeling very proud of him. He has always been there for us. And this is our friendship. Friendship No. 1,” Paramjit told Aaj Tak.

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist also recently commented on Dhoni’s new bat sticker during the second T20I between Australia and West Indies.

“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 said.

This is not the first time Dhoni has shown appreciation to those who supported him throughout his career. In the 2019 World Cup, he prominently displayed the stickers of SS and BAS, his earliest bat sponsors, similarly showcasing his gratitude.
