There is no doubt about the fact that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one of the greatest ever skippers of the cricketing world. It was way back in 2004 that a long-haired Jharkhand-born lad made his One-day International debut for India against Bangladesh.

The veteran cricketer started off his career in a horrendous fashion scoring a duck on his debut. However, he ensured that his failures never allowed to affect him. And he went on to become one of the greatest limited-overs batsmen of all time.
Dhoni has won several laurels for his country. He is still the only skipper in the world to lead his nation to glory in all three major ICC Trophies.
The 36-year-old Dhoni has developed a huge fan following over the years. Fondly known as Mahi, Dhoni is also the brand endorser for several well-known brands. The former skipper is one of the richest if not the richest in the world.
Very recently he was made the brand ambassador of the Sumadhura Group. It is a real estate developer in South India. The Managing Director and the Chairman, Madhusudhan G. was pretty ecstatic after signing Dhoni.
“We are honoured to have Dhoni, an eminent cricketer of international stature, join the Sumadhura Group family. He combines his exceptional performance with his legacy and values – precisely what we, at Sumadhura Group also stand for,” Madhusudhan was quoted as saying by zricks.com.
“Dhoni’s intelligence, humbleness, “full of life” attitude, passion, and reliability along with his focused leadership qualities with a trustworthy reputation are the perfect attributes that match Sumadhura’s brand image. Our association with him has come at a most opportune time,” the MS added.
Dhoni yet again led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to their third IPL title a month ago. He was quite brilliant with the bat as well.
Meanwhile, he has also praised the real estate company. He promised to contribute his bit to the real estate company.
Words from Mahendra Singh Dhoni:
“As a brand ambassador, I seek for brands that I relate to and can be impactful for, and this partnership makes me fulfil that very purpose. In this endeavour, I am proud to be associated with Sumadhura Group, who are known for their uncompromising values and trust earned over 20 years of excellence in business,” Dhoni said following his signing.
