A lot has been said about MS Dhoni's humility and modesty. Another sheer example of his simplicity was visible when the former Indian captain politely declined to inaugurate the pavilion named after him at the JSCA Stadium.
As per reports, when Dhoni was approached to invite him to inaugurate the stand, the 37-year-old cricketer had said “Dada mein toh isika hissa hu. Ghar ka ladka apne hi ghar mein kya inaugurate karega? (I am a part of this ground. How can a person inaugurate something in his own home?)”
According to Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) secretary, Debashis Chakraborty, the JSCA had asked Dhoni to inaugurate the stand before the third ODI between India and Australia, that begins on Friday.
