Though he announced his retirement from Tests in December 2014, Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to be a crowd-puller and a bankable celebrity for product endorsements. In recent times, however, he has been criticised for his captaincy as Indian cricket readies for the next era under Virat Kohli. His proximity to embattled former BCCI chief N Srinivasan has not gone down well with fans either. Chennai Super Kings, the IPL team that he leads, stands suspended for two years in connection with a betting and match-fixing scandal.
Fast Fact: He is co-producing a biopic on his life, called MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, starring Sushant Singh Rajput.
