MS Dhoni turned 37


India's former captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni turned 37 on Saturday. Popularly known as Captain Cool, Dhoni is spectacular for his nerves to deal with stress.

At this age also he is perfectly fit and not ready to hang his boots as he is still in demand in all forms of cricket whether it is T-20, one-day or test cricket. He is a dynamic personality and perfectly cool as a captain, wicketkeeper, family man, bike racer or a devotee.

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma attended the birthday ceremony that took place at Cardiff in Delhi. Arun Pandey, a producer of Dhoni biopic, shared a photo of the birthday bash which also features Anushka and Virat. Millions of messages appeared on Social Media from both fans and friends across the world.

As a captain of Chennai Super Kings, he brought his team many times to the crown. He has already won the hearts of millions for his brilliance in Wicket Keeping and batting.

In 2010, he tied the knot with his childhood friend Sakshi Singh. The couple have successfully completed seven years of marriage.

A bike lover, he has dedicated an entire garage for his collection of bikes. He is a bike racer also. Dhoni's dream to join with Army was also fulfilled with the award of a rank of honorary lieutenant colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Territorial Army.

He is also regarded as one of the best wicket-keepers in world cricket and is known to have very fast hands. He made his One Day International (ODI) debut in December 2004 against Bangladesh and played his first Test a year later against Sri Lanka.

Dhoni has been the recipient of many awards, including the ICC ODI Player of the Year award in 2008 and 2009 (the first player to win the award twice), the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award in 2007, the Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian honour, in 2009 and the Padma Bhushan, India's third highest civilian honour, in 2018. He was named as the captain of the ICC World Test XI in 2009, 2010 and 2013.

He is also famous for his philanthropic activity by extending help to poor and downtrodden people. The fans and fellow cricketers always love to wish a long cricketing life to MSD, as he is called in short.
