In a surprising and unusual pairing, legendary Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was recently spotted sharing a golf course with former US President Donald Trump. Here’s the full story.
The meeting occurred as Dhoni, fresh from his fifth Indian Premier League (IPL) victory, found himself in the United States.
A Round of Golf
He was invited to enjoy a round of golf at Donald Trump’s exclusive golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Dhoni and Trump Side by Side
A Twitter user posted a picture of Dhoni and Trump standing side by side on the golf course.
“Golf with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Donald Trump, and Rajiv Sharma. Thank you, Mr. President, for hosting us,” the caption read.
Legendary Cricketer and Former POTUS
The image showed the former Indian cricket captain and the former US President sporting his signature red MAGA cap.
The post received widespread attention, with people celebrating Dhoni and many criticizing the legend for being with Trump.
The meeting unfolded at the high-profile fundraiser organized by Donald Trump, with the proceeds intended for the legal defense of Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City.
Trump’s Legal Challenges
Giuliani, a close ally of Trump and his former lawyer, has recently faced a barrage of legal challenges, including fees, fines, sanctions, and damages tied to his involvement in efforts to overturn the 2020 US presidential election and other legal cases.
In July, Giuliani was indicted alongside Donald Trump and 17 others in Georgia.
The indictment, brought by Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis, alleges a far-reaching conspiracy to subvert the will of voters following Trump’s defeat to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Giuliani’s legal woes have posed significant financial challenges, prompting the fundraiser hosted by Trump.
Andrew Giuliani, the son of Rudy Giuliani, shared insights into the event during a radio interview, explaining that it was expected to raise over $1 million for his father’s legal defense.
A Second Fundraising Event
Moreover, he revealed that Donald Trump had committed to hosting a second fundraising event at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida later in the fall or early winter.
Money for Legal Support
While the funds generated by these events are expected to provide critical support, Andrew Giuliani acknowledged that they might not be sufficient to address the magnitude of his father’s legal challenges.

Several social media users shared their views on the incident.
One user wrote, “Now MS DHONI is blessing Donald J. Trump while Playing Golf with him.”
Dhoni Should Teach Trump
Another user added, “MSD please teach him How to make things Great again. He might need it and give him Leadership skills too.”
What Money Can Buy
A third user commented, “What money can buy. Lost all respect for Dhoni.”
A fourth user wrote, “Why would Dhoni play golf with a sexual assaulter? Wrong message for our youth.”
