Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had experienced a massive amount of fan-following during his captaincy and even after stepping down from the position for handing over the reins to Virat Kohli, people's admiration for the legendary cricketer has not diminished.

More than often, the player has witnessed his fans expressing their respect for him through weird gestures. Many supporters of the Chennai Super Kings  (his team in Indian Premier League) haven't failed to make him acknowledge that they worship the ground he walks on.

During various matches of IPL this year, CSK fans have breached security and ran into the pitch for touching MS Dhoni's feet. The same happened on Saturday during Chennai's match with Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. 

After Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo led their team through a clinical six-wicket win, a fan wearing CSK jersey ran on to the pitch and fell at the feet of team's captain. A similar incident happened on Thursday at Eden Gardens in Kolkata when a fan entered the dug-out area.

Just as the captain was getting ready to bat against Kolkata Knight Riders, a fan came from nowhere to touch his feet. While others seemed shocked by the intrusion, Dhoni was unfazed and calmly asked him to go back as the area was specifically maintained for players and support staff.

Another evidence of people's adoration for the player was seen when a fan breached the security barrier during his team's match with Rajasthan Royals on April 20 only to touch his feet and exchange few words with his idol.

Nonetheless, CSK recorded an outstanding victory against Virat Kohli's team and established themselves at par with the IPL 2018 points Table-toppers SunRisers Hyderabad. While CSK has won 7 of the 10 played games this IPL, Dhoni hold third place in the top run-getters list with 360 runs.
