Dhoni is a hot favourite of badminton stars, Sindhu & Srikanth
Former India cricket captain captain MS Dhoni is a hot favourite of India's young badminton stars.
Dhoni, who is the captain of the IPL team, Chennai Super Kings, is a big role model for achievers from other sports too.
Rio Olympic silver-medallist PV Sindhu says that if given a choice to choose a doubles partner from the current lot of Indian cricketers, she would choose either Dhoni or Virat Kohli.
Sindhu said that there is a lot to learn from Dhoni and Kohli. She said she admired their aggressive spirit and the way they play.
Kidambi Srikanth, who is currently the world number four in badminton is also a big fan of Dhoni. He received a cricket bat signed by Dhoni on Saturday.
Dhoni was happy when he heard that Srikanth wanted a bat signed by him. Dhoni is a badminton player himself and follows the game closely. He sent a personally signed autographed bat across to Dhoni.
A thrilled Kidambi Srikanth later tweeted -
Thank you @msdhoni for the wonderful gift and can’t tell how happy I am. This just made my day.🤩😁 #MSDhoni #fanmoment
