Cricket is more-like a religion in India, and because of the immense popularity of this sport, cricketers are often treated as celebrities. The gentleman’s game allows players not only to earn money but also, to become a global icon as well.

Once, a player becomes a regular feature in the Indian Cricket Team, he becomes popular overnight. Fans start to take notice of his every action, every move, both on and off the field.

And we’re not talking about just the cricket fans, but female fans as well, who adore Indian cricketers a lot.

Sometimes, cricketers themselves take note of their fans and become close to them.

One of the biggest celebrities of Indian cricket, there are perhaps very few people in India who would not recognise MS Dhoni. Due to his immense hard work, Dhoni has amassed a lot of die-hard fans in his career.

Fondly known as ‘captain cool’, the former Indian skipper has a shy nature and he is known to maintain distance from the limelight. But that is not so easy, particularly if you are the captain of Team India.

Talking about his wife, Sakshi was a big fan of MS Dhoni, and the duo got married to each other on 4th July 2010, in Dehradun.

Soon they had a daughter together, Ziva Dhoni, who is now the darling of the whole nation.
