The former Captain Cool is nothing less than a demigod for his fans, who are often seen going crazy just to catch a glimpse of the veteran whenever he makes his presence, be it on or off the field. Similar was the case when Dhoni made a public appearance for the All Stars Football Club for an exhibition event on Monday.

It was Dhoni’s first public appearance in a long time and fans were spotted going absolutely berserk to catch a glimpse of the veteran ace. There was madness all around as several fans were spotted blocking the road to meet their favourite cricketing hero in person.

After going to a lean patch of his career in 2018, the former skipper has jumped three places to the 17th spot in the latest ICC ODI Rankings following his impressive show in Australia and New Zealand.
