Dhoni greets fans after charity football match: The Indian wicket-keeper batsman was recently seen meeting his fans in Mumbai.
There is no hiding to the fact that former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni enjoys a heavy fan base in both India and overseas. The highlight about his passionate and loyal fans is them standing by his side even in adverse situations.
In the past, there have been numerous instances of Dhoni’s fans showing immense love for him with him reciprocating to them by acknowledging their gestures. One such incident was caught on camera recently post Dhoni’s participation in a charity football match in Mumbai.
The viral video witnesses Dhoni being greeted by his fans after he comes out of the venue. Dhoni’s attempt to hold a child in his arms doesn’t reap fruits as the latter gave the impression of ignoring the legendary cricketer’s offer.

Coming on the back of a worst year (in terms of number of runs scored) in ODIs, plentiful question marks were raised on the 38-year old Dhoni.
With the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on the horizon, the veteran cricketer’s form had undoubtedly become a concern for the Indian team management and fans last year.
However, the advent of a new year saw a change in fortunes for Dhoni. The veteran scored three consecutive half-centuries to earn the Man of the Series award in the three-match series against Australia. In the six ODIs which Dhoni has played this year, he has scored 242 runs at an average of 121 and a strike rate of 79.86.
