People have long been interested in the eating preferences of cricket players. Fans are often curious to discover specifics, from their daily diets to their exercise regimens. According to Robin Uthappa, who recently recounted his memories of playing with MS Dhoni, the media just learned about some of his peculiar eating habits. When Uthappa played for India and the Indian T20 League, he shared a changing room alongside Dhoni. Dhoni has recently admitted to having some “strict” eating habits. He even said that Dhoni had a “strange” relationship with food.
Uthappa discussed their time together as a squad in an episode of My Time With Heroes titled My Time With Dhoni ft. Uthappa on JioCinema. He disclosed that he and Dhoni were associates with Munaf Patel, Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, RP Singh and Piyush Chawla.
‘He is quite weird when it comes to eating’ – Robin Uthappa
They would frequently order a large number of dishes and eat together. But, regarding his dietary preferences, Dhoni was a pretty conservative individual. Dhoni would eat butter chicken but not the chicken whenever they would order it. This means he was just interested in the gravy. And Dhoni would stay away from rotis when he did eat the chicken.
“He would eat butter chicken but without the chicken, only with the gravy! When he ate chicken, he wouldn’t eat the rotis. He is quite weird when it comes to eating,” added Uthappa. However, that’s not all. Uthappa also shared that during his first season with the Indian T20 League’s Chennai franchise, he noticed everyone calling Dhoni “Mahi Bhai”. So, Uthappa also asked him if he could do so too. To this, Dhoni replied, “Call me what you want; it makes no difference. Please call me Mahi only.”
Dhoni will captain Chennai in the upcoming season of the Indian T20 League. On social media, videos of him practising at the Chepauk Stadium have already attracted the attention of cricket fans as everyone waits to see Dhoni’s last dance in the yellow jersey. His team will face off against Gujarat in the season opener on March 31.
