MS Dhoni is one of the few Indian cricket heroes for whom fans would go to any extent to catch a glimpse of him. His fan following is immense and one has to do something extraordinary to stand out among the rest.
One such extraordinary feat was pulled off by a fan from Haryana named Ajay Gill walked 1436 Kms to reach Ranchi and catch a glimpse of his hero MS Dhoni. This is the second time Gill walked on foot to Ranchi to see the MS in the last three months. The last time he came to Ranchi, it took him 16 days while this time, he completed his journey in 18 days.
