Just like Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and the other legends of cricket who’s faces are impossible to not notice, one of Indian cricket’s biggest fans Sudhir Gautam is an ever present factor in the stands during an India match. Gautam, who paints his body with the India colours and sports a flag in his hand which is always waved with great gusto, irrespective of the situation is admittedly a huge of Sachin Tendulkar. And his love for cricket and the Little Master knows no limits.
Sudhir, who travelled on cycle across the length and breadth of the country during the 2011 World Cup and also made it to the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand thanks to his favourite cricketer.

On Friday evening, Sudhir was hosted for a very special meal by former India captain MS Dhoni. The fan, who is as much a part of Indian cricket folklore as the cricketers themselves, posted on social media and said, “Special Day with Captain Cool @msdhoni, Super Lunch with Super Family at Farm House. Words can’t describe the moments spent. Thank You MS Dhoni and Sakshi Di @SaakshiSRawat. Captain Relaxed after winning #IPL2018 @ChennaiIPL.”
Less than a week ago, MS Dhoni had led the returning Chennai Super Kings franchise to fairytale third IPL title when they beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mumbai.
Dhoni’s next assignment in India colours will be when they play Ireland in a two-match T20 International series.
