‘MS Dhoni is bigger than the Beatles’! Do you agree? Recently, a renowned Australian journalist Peter Lalor went on to not only compare the former Indian captain to the iconic English rock band, but he felt that the former is bigger than the later. That is the first of a kind, no one in the past has ever drawn a similar comparison. The journalist tweeted this about Dhoni after he saw how the crowd at Chepauk reacted on seeing Dhoni walk out to the middle. Dhoni has time and again proved that he is the most popular Indian cricketer ever (maybe second only to Sachin Tendulkar). Lalor’s post read, “Dhoni is bigger than the Beatles. Sound on. Intense.”
He followed it up with another post which read, “I’m assuming its a warm up before a game. There was half a stand of people at training once when Sachin walked out and looked in their direction I looked up because I thought we were being buzzed by a jet. The noise Indian cricket fans generate …”
Such adulation and receptions are nothing new for the two-time World Cup winning captain. But, one thing cannot be denied that in Chennai the following is more.
Earlier, Dhoni was once again spotted making a fan chase him after the fan frisked security to get up close and personal with his hero.
Meanwhile, CSK will start their title defense against RCB on the opening night of the upcoming season of IPL on March 23. It would be a much-awaited clash as Dhoni will lock horns with Virat Kohli.
