MS Dhoni is probably the coolest player in international cricket and once again this facet of the former India skipper was highlighted in the second ODI against Australia when a pitch invader tried to chase him. Dhoni had some fun with the over-excited fan by running away from him but in the end gave him a hug which brought smiles on everybody’s face.
The incident happened during the start of Australia’s innings in the second ODI played at Nagpur. Indian players were getting ready to take the field when an over-excited fan broke the security barriers and stormed into the playing area.
The fan reached the Indian players and shook hands with a few. He then moved his attention towards India’s wicket-keeper MS Dhoni.
However, Dhoni realized the fan’s intentions and hid behind Rohit Sharma. And then began the funny chase between the former India skipper and the pitch invader.
Dhoni swiftly changed directions and kept the fan guessing as the duo circled around Indian players and then Dhoni reached the pitch and finished this game.
The Indian cricketer then allowed the fan to hug him and asked him to leave the field. Fellow Indian cricketers had a good laugh watching Dhoni’s fun with the pitch invader and the crowd in the stadium enjoyed it too.
Soon after the incident, the video of the Indian wicket-keeper and the fan went viral on the social media and the cricket fraternity enjoyed Dhoni’s cool response.

Meanwhile Indian skipper Virat Kohli continued his tremendous batting form and produced his 40th international hundred on a difficult pitch.
However lack of support from other end meant India was all out for 250 runs in the 49th over.
