Former Indian captain MS Dhoni has been one of the poster boys for the Indian Premier League and IPL uses Dhoni’s brand image to publicize the league through their entertaining ads. This season is no different as Star Sports have continued with their series of advertisements with the legend.
MS Dhoni surprised the cricket fans in the latest campaign promo of #YehAbNormalHai. The campaign film launched by Star Sports, the official broadcaster of TATA IPL 2022, narrates that IPL is an unpredictable tournament and the 15th edition of the IPL could be anyone’s season, “Yahaan kisiko halke mein mat lena!”
The latest promo film opens to another tense situation where a bomb squad is struggling to defuse a bomb with the clock ticking away. While one member of the bomb squad mockingly mentions that only blue and yellow wires are dangerous, MS Dhoni appears on the screen to tell them to take all the wires seriously since this is an unpredictable situation.
The bomb squad do not pay attention and cut the other wires, triggering a massive blast. MS Dhoni appeared on the screen again and said “Yahaan kisiko halke mein mat lena, Yahaa koi bhi fat sakta hai” reiterating the fact that IPL is an unpredictable tournament and even though only MI and CSK have won the prestigious trophy over the last five years, any of the teams can throw up a challenge and shouldn’t be taken lightly this year.
Watch the latest ad for IPL starring, MS Dhoni, here:
The broadcasters have shared a similar ad film in which Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya could be seen asking the bomb squad to take all the wires seriously. After the bomb went off, Hardik came on the screen and reiterated that no one can take other teams lightly. Hardik emphasized that the two new teams i.e. Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants will create a huge impact in the 15th edition of the T20 tournament.
Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni, who might be playing his final IPL this year, will be looking to defend his crown. CSK won the IPL for the fourth time last year under Dhoni’s leadership. However, this year CSK has tough roads waiting for them as the IPL is now a 10-team tournament.
The IPL will get underway with the repeated clash of 2021 IPL finalists CSK and KKR on 26th March. The complete tournament will be played in Maharashtra due to the Covid situation.
