India’s ace shuttler Kidambi Srikanth, who is known for his humble nature and calm demeanour; receives a special gift from another calm headed sportsperson of the nation. He is none other than MS Dhoni, who sent Srikanth his signed bat after the shuttler wished for it and passed his message to BCCI selector MSK Prasad.
Srikanth is a huge fan of Dhoni and like he expressed his wish to receive this special bat from the Indian cricketer through Prasad, he received the same through the same channel. An elated Srikanth posted a picture of the bat and wrote, “Thank you @msdhoni for the wonderful gift and can’t tell how happy I am. This just made my day.”

As reported by Sportskeeda, Prasad revealed how it all happened by saying, “I had already spoken about Srikanth’s wish to MSD. He was more than happy to hear this and he told me he himself is a badminton player and follows Indian badminton very closely. MSD then personally signed and sent an autographed bat to my house as a gift to Srikanth.”
“I went all the way to Pullela Gopichand badminton academy yesterday and surprised Srikanth with MSD’s gift to him as he stood by his word and became numero uno in world badminton,” added Prasad.
