Cricketers enjoy a celebrity status in India, and why not, it’s difficult to find people who aren’t cricket fans or idolise a star cricketer like MS Dhoni. He is celebrating his 37th birthday today and the other most popular thing about the man is that he is a petrolhead at heart. You have to have a lot of motoring enthusiasm to buy the machines Dhoni has in his garage – pay cheques big enough also help. But Dhoni earned his right of passage into India’s elite society based on sheer talent. On his birthday, we have nothing but good wishes for him and for you, here’s a list of Dhoni’s car and bike collection.
