MS Dhoni visited the India Cements’ office in Chennai recently, when he was in the city for the opening match of the ongoing five-match series between India and Australia. Dhoni also met the company chief and former BCCI president N. Srinivasan during the ‘official visit’.

According to reports, MS Dhoni met several officials of the India Cements during his visit and also had a one-on-one meeting with Srinivasan, the vice-chairman and the managing director of the company that owns IPL side Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Dhoni is the vice-president of the company.

CSK are all set to make a comeback to the IPL circuit having served a two-year suspension imposed by the Supreme Court, in wake of the IPL 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal.

Apart from his meetings with the officials as well as N. Srinivasan, Dhoni is said to have utilised the facilities at the office gymnasium.

The company shared photographs of the meetings on its Facebook page as well. “MS Dhoni (VP-Marketing, The India Cements) visited the corporate office and spent time with the ICL family. He met the senior management team, met with teams in various departments (marketing, finance, HR, manufacturing etc).

“He spent some time at the cafeteria during lunch time which allowed his colleagues to take selfies with him which will be always cherished in their memories”, India Cements said on the post.

“As he was in Chennai, he wanted to visit the office, meet Mr Srinivasan and find out for himself how the office works,” Kasi Viswanath, an official close to N. Srinivasan was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror.

“It is no secret that CSK want Dhoni but we are still waiting to hear from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on the way forward for the league,” Viswanath added.
