Mumbai : After retiring from Test cricket and giving up ODI and T20 captaincy India’s best captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni started a new innings. MS Dhoni was appointed as the chief executive officer (CEO) of Gulf Oil India. Don’t be surprised he was appointed just for a day.

 The former India captain reached the company's headquarters in Andheri, Mumbai, on Monday to assume his new role. The wicketkeeper-batsman was dressed in a blue suit, white shirt and tie.

 As a CEO of the company for the day, Dhoni has attended all the special meetings of the company. He will also take quite a few decisions, just like a real CEO.

The employees of the company were surprised when the Ranchi-born walked into their office, that too as a CEO.

Dhoni has been associated with the automobile lubricant since 2011 when he was named the brand ambassador of Gulf Oil.


Dhoni last played international cricket when he took part in India's third Twenty20 against England in Bengaluru on February 1. He had scored 56 to help India win the three-match series 2-1.
