He is one of the greatest cricketers to play the sport. Despite giving up the national captaincy, MS Dhoni continues to be the nation’s heartthrob and therefore one can imagine the soaring popularity that he enjoys. Every Indian city he travels to, fans queue up to get a glimpse of him. An autograph or a selfie is just the icing on the cake. One can imagine the scenes in his hometown Ranchi.

Dhoni, who is leading Jharkhand in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, landed at Ranchi’s Bisra Munda Airport on Tuesday. Amidst the hoards of fans and security, Dhoni jumped behind the wheels of his SUV, to drive home. A report from DNA mentions that a girl, who was waiting for Dhoni, stood right in front of his car. The security men were quick to pull the girl away but her bag fell off and got run over by the car. ALSO READ: Watch a Dhoni fan breach Brabourne Stadium security to touch his idol’s feet

Dhoni, the gentleman, was quick to apply brakes. He checked if the girl was doing fine. It is often humility added to skills that takes you to the next level.
