Former India captain MS Dhoni bumped into a young fan once he landed in Hyderabad for the 1st ODI. The girl fan ran into Dhoni on seeing him and hugged him tightly. Dhoni was generous enough to allow the girl fan to live the moment. The 37-year-old continues to be the most popular cricketer in the country and has a huge fan base. He gets a following and standing ovation wherever he plays. By hugging the girl fan, Dhoni has given her memories for life. The girl was just not ready to let go of Dhoni as he tightens her grip. It is a candid moment that may give you goosebumps.
Here are the pictures:
Meanwhile, Dhoni became the only Indian to hit 50+ T20I sixes and only Indian to hit 350 T20 sixes.
Dhoni got a rousing reception when he walked out in the middle at the Chinnaswamy for the 2nd T20I against Australia. Dhoni walked in the middle after Rishabh Pant was out for a solitary run. This is not the first time Dhoni has got such a warm welcome, it happens with him wherever he goes. The 37-year-old is the most popular cricketer in the country and enjoys a huge fan following wherever he goes. The 37-year-old is an important member of India even now. He contributes with the bat and is razor sharp behind the stumps which makes him an asset for the Men in Blue.
“It was a pretty short series to summarise the performances. Australia outplayed us in all departments and deserved to win. 190 is a good total on most grounds but if there is so much dew as there was tonight and when you have an innings like what Glenn Maxwell played, nothing much you can do,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
