Time and again, MS Dhoni has proven why he deserves the love and appreciation that millions of his fans shower on him.
Be it small gestures or big, the former Indian captain never fails to touch hearts and what happened on CSK's flight to UAE for the upcoming IPL, is an example of the same.
Dhoni, a senior and a legend, was of course given a seat in business class. However, when he noticed that the team director, K George John, was struggling to fit his legs in the economy class, Dhoni readily offered him his seat.
John informed his followers about Dhoni's incredible gesture with a tweet:
When a man who’s seen it all, done it all in Cricket tells you, “Your legs are too long, sit in my seat (Business Class), I’ll sit in Economy.” The skipper never fails to amaze me. @msdhoni pic.twitter.com/bE3W99I4P6— george (@georgejohn1973) August 21, 2020
Dhoni's fans, who are still coping with the pain of the cricketer's retirement from international cricket, were highly emotional after reading this, and had many words of appreciation for the CSK icon.

Hi George, That's what you call down to Earth. Could you please pass on my 🙏 and Salute to Mahi Sir.— [email protected] (@rajbacargoyaho2) August 22, 2020
This incident reminds us of the time when Sunil Gavaskar had recalled how Dhoni would often give up his business class seats for the technicians who were covering the matches, when the cricket star was India captain.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni hardly ever sat in business class on the flights even when he was the skipper as he would prefer to sit with the real champs of the TV coverage, the cameramen and the sound engineers.
