Padma Bhushan: A new feather in Dhoni’s hat


Our beloved former Indian cricket captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been a favourite since day one. Standing among the best players in cricketing history. He has inspired a lot of people for a very long time and continues to do so. He was honoured with a Padma Bhushan on 2nd April 2018 and we couldn’t be more proud of him.

1. Dhoni was honoured with a Padma Bhushan Award at a ceremony in Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind on 2nd April 2018
