Kolkata Knight Riders’ cricketer Sheldon Jackson has run out of words after a beautiful gesture from MS Dhoni towards him. Unarguably one of the most beloved cricketers of all time, Dhoni certainly knows how to win hearts both on and off the field.
A role model for many youngsters, MSD is never behind when it comes to treating them with love and respect. In one of such touching moments, the veteran obliged Sheldon Jackson’s request by autographing his bat and gloves after Chennai Super Kings beat KKR in a high-scoring thriller by 18 runs to climb to the top of the IPL points table.
Sharing the priceless moment on Instagram, Jackson captioned the post “A moment I can’t put to words #fanboy”.

MS Dhoni and the many fanboy moments
This was not the first time in the season when any youngster or a player from the opponent team was seen beaming about getting a chance to meet their idol or capture an invaluable moment with the legendary man. Dhoni was seen interacting with the young Shahrukh Khan after CSK defeated Punjab Kings, while the Delhi Capitals’ pacer, who dismissed him for a duck, shared a click with him recently.
Rajasthan Royals’ pacer Chetan Sakariya also took to Instagram to share a heart-warming post, where he mentioned how standing next to Dhoni and playing alongside him was his “dream come true” moment.
MS is currently leading CSK and is playing his 14th season in the league. Given his puzzling nature, all his supporters hang in uncertainty about what his next move will be. In the 2020 edition, many of his CSK teammates as well as players from other teams were seen taking his match jersey as a souvenir. Much to the pleasant surprise of many,
Dhoni revealed that “maybe they thought he is retiring”. Although, he was “definitely not”.
