Gavaskar has been an admirer of Dhoni for a long time and he has made no attempt to keep his admiration towards the former Indian skipper a secret.

I became a fan of MS Dhoni when I saw him play for the first time. Fans want to meet their hero, have a chat with them, take their autograph or click a picture with them. When I met him for the first time, I saw that Dhoni was doing a lap of honour around the Chepauk Stadium to thank the fans for their support. He is a fantastic role model and carries himself very well. I approached him to sign my shirt which he did. That shirt is still proudly kept at my house,” Gavaskar was heard saying in the video released by Star Sports.
