MS Dhoni might not be captaining his IPL franchise Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) but he is a favourite amongst his teammates. One such instance was when Dhoni was seen sitting and playing around with Imran Tahir’s son on the airport floor that set social media ablaze. Dhoni is good with kids. We know how doting a father he is to Ziva and now this video will leave you in smiles. There is a reason Dhoni is amongst the most loved cricketers in the world. Tahir had recently praised Dhoni who as one of the nicest people around. Tahir was also excited to play alongside Dhoni and it was nothing less than a dream come true for the South African spinner.

This is not the first time one has witnessed Dhoni’s simplicity. During the Ranji season, Dhoni enjoyed with his Jharkhand teammates off the field playing PlayStation. He also treated one of the chaiwala’s whom he used to visit frequently, with a small tea-break. Dhoni had even met the chaiwala recently at Kolkata and treated him once again. It came to a point where his friends felt that Dhoni should go back to Kharagpur and rechristen the tea stall to ‘Dhoni Tea Stall.’
On the IPL front, Dhoni is garnering all the accolades not just from Tahir but also from his team captain Steven Smith. In the recent cliff-hanger against Mumbai Indians (MI), in which RPS won by 3 runs, Smith was seen taking advice from Dhoni.
