A photo of this incident was shared by The Indian Cricket team on their Instagram account

In the second one-day international (ODI) played between India and Sri Lanka in Punjab, several records were broken by hitman Rohit Sharma. Sharma, who was leading the team in the absence of Virat Kohli, is the only batsman in the world to have three double centuries to his credit, and naturally, almost all headlines were focussed on his achievements. However, amidst the social media frenzy over Sharma, there was another heartwarming gesture that caught the attention of the netizens. And that was of a fan, who, in the middle of the match, ran towards MS Dhoni and touched his feet. The video of this incident went viral in no time, and Twitterati was delighted.

Some even stated that they wish they could do the same. This incident reflects the unwavering love and affection that Dhoni’s fans have for him. MS Dhoni Completes 100 ODI Stumpings, First Wicketkeeper to do so

Dhoni, who was the former Indian skipper, was known as Captain Cool, mostly due to his ability to maintain calm under pressure. Under his leadership, India has won several International tournaments including World T20, World Cup, and Champions Trophy. That apart, MS has also led his IPL team, Chennai Super Kings, to victory several times.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that a fan has rushed onto the field to touch Dhoni’s feet. In January this year, a fan managed to breach the security and entered the ground at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai to touch the feet of MS Dhoni. The fan, however, obeyed the umpire’s request to keep off the wicket.
