IPL 2018: MS Dhoni Gets A 'Canine Salute' For His Never-Ending Love For Dogs — WATCH

IPL 2018: Chennai Super Kings have qualified for the playoffs and are currently second on the points table with 8 wins from 12 matches

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni is an ardent dog-lover. He owns a number of pets and regularly posts dog videos and photos on social media. He even adopted a stray dog a few years ago from a rescue shelter in his hometown Ranchi. He once again showed his adoration for dogs after CSK’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Pune on May 13.

In a video posted on CSK’s Instagram handle, MS Dhoni can be seen petting a security dog. The dog is a labrador who Dhoni walks down the boundary rope and plays with it. This sweet gesture of Dhoni’s also seemed to have gotten the ground staff excited

One of the ground staff got so emotional that he, along with the dog, saluted MS Dhoni. The former Indian skipper is extremely respected in India for his down to earth image.

Hailing from humble roots, MS Dhoni had become the toast of the nation when he took India to victory in World T20 Cup in 2007 and then helped India lift the 2011 Cricket World Cup. His following is comparable to that of a demi-god in India and he is also a global cricket ambassador. Critics had written off MS Dhoni ahead of the IPL, citing fitness and age as factors. But MS Dhoni silenced his critics in the best way possible, allowing his bat to do the talking and performing splendidly.

Meanwhile, CSK have qualified for the playoffs and are currently second on the points table with 8 wins from 12 matches.
