Call him the 'Undisputed King', 'Destiny's Child' or ' Man with the Midas Touch', MS Dhoni has proved his worth to find his name in the book of legends.

Wherever Mahi goes, he gets a thunderous reception from the crowd. Be it his hometown Ranchi, his second home Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata or even on foreign grounds like MCG or Johannesburg, people are always there to support him.

When Dhoni walked out to the middle for practice, over 10,000 fans who had thronged inside the Chepauk stadium were on their feet for their 'Thalaiva'.  Within no time, this incident became viral on social media. A couple of cricketers were stunned by such a grand reception that they could not stop themselves from appreciating it.

Apart from his game and style people love and support Dhoni for his success. He is the only captain to have won all the ICC tournaments (ICC World T20 in 2007,  ICC Test Mace in 2009, ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011 and ICC Champions Trophy in 2013).  While he might no longer be the finisher he once used to be, he is making up for it with his acrobatic as well as entertaining wicket-keeping.
