New Delhi: India's Captain cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni has numerous fans and admirers across the globe. But this one might turn out to be special and different which follows MSD to cheer almost everywhere they play. Mohammad Basheer, a Pakistani, is a very special fan of Indian skipper and can be seen standing in the stands sporting a bright green kurta praying for Dhoni.

Professionally a restaurateur of "Gharib Nawaz Restaurant" in Chicago, Mohammad Basheer is from Karachi, Pakistan. The 63-year-old,

“I am from Karachi but I live in Chicago. My wife Rafia is from Hyderabad, India. I love Dhoni, he is my hero.” He has the words ‘Dhoni I love U' printed his shirt, says Basheer.

“At the 2014 World T20, I could not get any tickets for any of the matches, so Dhoni arranged a complimentary ticket of the final for me. He is a gem of a person. I have come to make sure he wins the World Cup. I am sure his new born baby will bring him luck,” said Bashir.

“And once when I was hungry, he passed me a sandwich. He is a gem of a person. I have come to make sure he wins the World Cup. I am sure his new born baby will bring him luck,” said Basheer.

Basheer also said, when Dhoni came out to meet him and autographed his shirt, he hugged Dhoni and said: “Your daughter will bring you luck and you will return with the trophy.”

“I did not want to trouble Dhoni this time, so I bought the tickets very early. I buy only the cheapest $20 tickets because that is where I can sit and shout at my loudest for my hero,” Bashir, who can be seen wearing Indian colours at some matches, said.

Not only Mahendra singh Dhoni, every member of the Indian cricket team knows Bhasheer, Rohit Sharma gifted him his sun glasses whereas Virat Kohli autographed his shirt.
