MS Dhoni is one of the loved cricketers around the globe who is respected not just by Indians but every cricketer and fan. Dhoni is known for his humble, cool, and calm nature, which is a major reason for his popularity among the cricket fraternity. We have seen several instances of MS Dhoni winning hearts with a humble attitude both on and off the field.
One such instance was recently seen when the former skipper was seen interacting with the airport staff who were escorting MSD to his flight. He is also seen shaking hands with the staff and greeting them with a smile.
