The name Mahendra Singh Dhoni gives birth to a lot of emotion in the hearts and souls of cricket lovers. His contribution specifically to Indian cricket has been massive and his journey inspiring. For millions of people in the country, Dhoni remains a role model who shone at the big stage despite his humble beginnings. While he led India to win most famously in the T20 World Cup in 2007, followed by the 2011 World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy, apart from leading the Test side to the number 1 ranking, MSD also left behind a huge legacy purely as a wicketkeeper-batter.

Although there have been many tributes from fans and even experts and fellow cricketers, a picture doing the rounds on internet shows the Chapter 7 of a textbook- which happens to be Dhoni's iconic jersey number- based on the player's life. The introduction goes on to tell the basic details of the cricketer while the lesson begins from his cricketing achievements. The picture though seems to be an old one as it addresses Dhoni as the current India captain.

Check out the picture here:

Although he announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15, 2020, Mahi continues to lead his franchise Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. MS boasts of a splendid record as a leader even in the IPL but failed to lead the Men in Yellow to the Playoffs for the first and only time last season.

This year, though, Chennai were looking like the team fans were used to watching and were placed second in the points table with five wins from 7 matches when the tournament had to be suspended after multiple coronavirus cases emerged inside the bio-secure bubbles. The tournament has now been relocated to the United Arab Emirates. Ahead of the competition's resumption in September, Dhoni was spotted in Dubai with his wife.

It is being learned that the 40-year-old paid a visit to the doctors and frontline nurses at a hospital in Dubai and also clicked a few pictures with them. The same was confirmed after the social media handles of the hospital shared those pictures.
