As expected, MSD’ians have taken over social media a day ahead of former India skipper MS Dhoni’s birthday. This is nothing unexpected, considering the popularity he enjoys among his fans, despite having not played a single international cricket game for over a year. Dhoni – who went on a sabbatical after India’s exit from 2019 cricket world cup, has been making the most of his time by being with his family and keeping a low key – something his fans have got accustomed to.

Twitter and other social media platforms are flooded with his old pictures and rare videos, which speak of their unconditional love and support for him.
