Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not just grown as a player but as a person over the years. The respected cricketer is not just admired by his teammates but also his opponents for his distinctive ground play and game awareness.

After losing the T20 series to the hosts on December 24, the Sri Lankan team was clouded with sadness and disappointment but instead of soaking in his team's victory, Dhoni was seen imparting some of his well-connected knowledge about cricket with the rival squad.

The top-notch wicketkeeper and collected batting style have become the inspiration for many young cricketers including the Lankan players Upul Tharanga, Akila Dhananjaya and Sadeera Samarawickrama who could be seen taking in Dhoni's kind words post-Sunday's match.

While the visitor's skipper Thisara Perera was being interviewed by Sanjay Manjrekar post losing the 3rd T20I at the Wankhede Stadium, his teammates were seeking guidance from the former Indian skipper. The recent viral video is a sight to behold with Dhoni mentoring the young professionals so naturally.

Despite the enormous efforts of Dhoni's critics to downplay the player, Indian coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli have backed him. Team's chief selector MSK Prasad also virtually confirmed his presence in the 2019 World Cup, a few days back.
