Cricket is often called a “Gentlemen game” and MS Dhoni has proved time and again why he is often been known for his humility and great gesture.
IPL is a festival in India and very rightly said. Here players from different countries come under one league and play for different teams. Thus, it helps players of all backgrounds and age groups to spend time and learn from each other.
Sometimes, it also leaves you with some beautiful and heart-warming gestures during the tournament. From early editions of IPL and other leagues till now, you would have seen a number of such instances and this one is no different.
In the 7th match between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings, Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw was seen experiencing some inconvenience in his eyes. Then CSK skipper MS Dhoni came to him and cleared the dirt in his eyes.
This gesture from Captain cool is winning hearts on the internet. MS Dhoni who has often been involved in this kind of incidents was being lauded from fans on social media.
The official twitter handle of the Indian Premier League also tweeted the picture of the incident with the caption, “Got something bothering you in the eye, Prithvi? MS Dhoni – Don’t worry, I have you covered.”

In 2015 also, in one the matches between South Africa and India when his CSK teammate Faf du Plessis was struggling with cramps while batting in the heats, MS Dhoni was quick to spot that and went out to help Du Plessis. This gesture then also was praised a lot.
