Former Indian skipper and keeper-batsman MS Dhoni has just turned 37 and the cricketing fraternity is going gaga on the occasion. Virender Sehwag also joined the long list of cricketers and wished Dhoni a very happy birthday in his typical style.
Sportspersons are the only other people who are as much followed by the public, if not more, as the actors or politicians. Indian cricket has always hogged the limelight as the sport is religiously followed by all sections of the Indian society. Indian cricketers have always been looked up to and have enjoyed celebrity status.
MS Dhoni is probably the most followed Indian cricketer. Mahi is not only an iconic figure but continues to inspire an entire generation. Recently, in a match against Ireland, Dhoni gave evidence of his greatness all over again as he carried drinks during the second T20I between India and Ireland.
Dhoni is one of the greatest cricketers that India has ever produced. He has close to 10000 runs in ODI and has various records as a wicketkeeper as well. Currently, he is the most senior player in the Indian team. Still keeping in mind the spirit of the game, Dhoni wore the jersey that is worn by the people who are in the squad but not in the playing XI and carried drinks on the ground.
It was a message for us on how to keep ourselves humble. Dhoni is one of the richest persons that you will ever see. He owns cars which cost in seven digits and has several sponsorship contracts but still keeps his feet on the ground.

Despite hitting the 37-year mark, Dhoni remains one of the fittest cricketers in the team and can even give athletes an inferiority complex.
