Being a sparkling and consistent performer, Mahendra Singh Dhoni comes across as one of the major names of the history of cricket. The former captain has produced magical moments time and again to swell his legacy. It is also important to note that he is the only captain till date to get his hands on the major trophies of the three formats of the game.
In light of above, it is only natural to believe that Dhoni possesses a massive fan base. While he enjoys stardom across the cricketing world, India definitely treats him like a prince. Recently, the 38-year old managed to defeat the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli to emerge as the second most admired man in India, only behind the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The survey which included 42000 people was stretched across 41 countries to explore the most admired people in the world, with separate categories included for men and women. For India, the talismanic cricketer went on to bag 8.58% of the votes, with only Narendra Modi sitting ahead of him with a vote share of 15.66%.
