Apart from his batting and wicket-keeping skills, MS Dhoni is also famous for his admirable collection of bikes.
Dhoni’s love for bikes goes back to his early college days when he used to ride a Rajdoot, and over the years, he has added some very enticing possessions to his collection.

Meanwhile, Dhoni’s collection of bikes has impressed legendary South African batsman Barry Richards so much that he wants the former Indian captain to give him a ride on his Harley Davidson.
“Dhoni has got a lovely attitude to cricket. So probably, I would ask him what are his interests outside of cricket, I would really like to know that. I would ask him whether I can have a ride on his Harley Davidson,” Richards said on Fan Play-Sports Ruler Inside Out with Baggs show.
Team India tasted huge success under Dhoni’s captaincy, winning the 2007 World T20, 2011 OD World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy. The veteran stumper also led the team to pinnacle in Test cricket.
Commenting on his captaincy, Richards said Dhoni’s leadership qualities reminded him of former England captain Mike Brearley as both get the best out of their players.
“Captains of my era are a little bit different. They had less pressure from the media than they do today. Mike Brearley was always a very impressive captain. He might not have been the best player but a very impressive captain. He got the best out of the players. So in my era, he would probably be the best captain,” the 74-year-old added.
It has been almost a year since MSD last played any competitive game. The 2019 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand at Old Trafford was his last appearance in the blue jersey.
In a bid to stake claim for a place in the national squad for the 2020 T20 World Cup, Dhoni was all set to lead the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), but the coronavirus pandemic forced the BCCI to suspend the tournament for an indefinite period.
