MS Dhoni is a demi-god in the country, probably only second to Sachin Tendulkar when it comes to fan following and adulation. Dhoni at the twilight of his career still comes up with good performances, like he showed in the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka at Dharamsala. The team was in tatters, when MS Dhoni took India to a face-saving score of 112, from 29 for 7. He was the top scorer of the match with 65. India lost the match by 7 wickets, but Dhoni silenced his detractors with the knock.
