‘Captain cool’ MSD still remains a fan favourite in India and his journey to the highest echelons of the game has been mainly due to his hard work. MS Dhoni is a popular example of rags to riches story in cricket that is highlighted in his biopic ‘MS Dhoni: The untold story’ and the wicket-keeper batsman is ageing like fine wine as he moves closer to hanging up his pads.
There’s no doubting Dhoni’s contribution to India’s Trophy cabinet and still remains the country’s most successful captain in all the three formats. Much to his achievement, the ‘helicopter man’ is also the only captain to win all three major ICC tournaments – the 2011 ICC World Cup, 2013 ICC Champions Trophy and the 2007 World T20.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya shared a video of Dhoni's birthday celebration on Instagram in their hotel room:
MSD is currently celebrating his birthday with the Indian team in the Jamaica and one special teammate, Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to wish the former Indian captain in a hilarious way.
The rest of the world also expressed their wishes on Twitter:
