Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a revered figure in India, probably the most admired cricketer in the country after Sachin Tendulkar. Due to his humble nature both on and off the field, Dhoni commands huge respect from his fans spread over the length and breadth of the country.
Recently, an adorable gesture from the former India captain towards an young fan has won over social media.
The video, which has gone viral, shows Dhoni interacting with a young girl while sitting in his car and ignoring the security protocols. Dhoni also shook hands with his fan before leaving for his destination.
The gesture has again proved why fans call him the 'man with a golden heart'.
Meanwhile, Dhoni's prolonged poor run with the bat has seen him getting dropped India's T20 squad, meaning he will not be a part of India's 3-match T20 series against Australia.
The former captain is just one-run shy of completing 10,000 runs for India in the ODI format. Dhoni has amassed 10,173 runs in ODIs but 174 of those runs came for Asia XI in a three-match series against Africa XI in 2007.
