Time and again MS Dhoni, one of the greatest cricketers of all time, have shown that he is humility personified. Despite achieving unparalleled success in the game, the former India skipper has made sure that he never forgets his humble roots. And perhaps it is one of the reasons why he is adored and respected so much across the nation. Last week itself Dhoni received praises from all over after coming out of the dressing room to meet a senior woman despite his team losing to Mumbai Indians. Dhoni had interacted with his elder fan in a cordial manner and had also obliged for photographs and autographs.
On Wednesday morning, Dhoni was at it again just a few hours after leading Chennai Super Kings to a thumping win over Kolkata Knight Riders. The team had to leave for Jaipur in the wee hours for their next game which is against Rajasthan Royals. And as expected the players were tired after the gruelling match day. However, most of the players managed to sit in the airport with their eyes open as they waited eagerly for the flight.
But Dhoni was in no mood to waste the time and he made the most of the minimum break. Instead of waiting for the flight by sitting, Dhoni used his bag as a pillow before lying flat on the floor to take a quick nap. Dhoni’s wife Sakshi also followed suit and she took a quick nap too. Dhoni then posted a picture of that beautiful moment on his Instagram account, writing:
“After getting used to IPL timing this is what happens if u have a morning flight”

Chennai Super Kings thrash Knight Riders
Talking about the game, the Super Kings beat the Knight Riders by seven wickets to move to the top of the points table. Asked to bat first, Knight Riders recovered from 35 for 5 to post a respectable 108 for 9 thanks to an unbeaten fifty from Andre Russell. Super Kings, in reply, chased down the total with more than two overs remaining to register their fifth win of the season.
