Ever since the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni landed on the Australian shores, there is only one name which is ruling the lips of every cricket fan. After India’s historic triumph in the four-match Test series against Australia, the Indian team management called back their white ball specialists which included the likes of Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, and Ambati Rayudu.
However, among all, there is one name which was easily the most sought after among fans in Australia and it was of the most successful skipper in the history of Indian cricket – Dhoni. On Friday, BCCI’s official Twitter handle posted a beautiful video where the 370-year old was seen interacting with the fans and signing autographs. BCCI’s post read, “MSD fever at the SCG post-practice. Humble as always, @msdhoni signed a few autographs for the fans who had gathered to watch #TeamIndia train before the 1st ODI.”
Here is the video of the same:

Earlier, the Australian players have more often than not praised Dhoni’s decorated international career as the India great prepares to play Down Under for potentially the last time. The 2011 World Cup-winning captain and dynamic wicketkeeper-batsman have been named in India’s 16-member squad for the coming three-match ODI series versus Australia, which starts on Saturday in Sydney.
Dhoni is set to be in action at the SCG (January 12), Adelaide Oval (January 15) and MCG (January 18) after he was picked as India’s first-choice gloveman, giving fans a golden opportunity to see him in action.
Describing the same, the Australian Test skipper, Tim Paine said, “I think he is one of the best wicketkeeper-batsmen to ever play the game. He is right up there, no doubt about that, particularly in white-ball cricket. Hopefully, he doesn’t get too many runs but it’s certainly going to be nice to have him here for a little bit. I’m happy I won’t be out there against him.”
