Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a modest man and no wonder he has politely declined to inaugurate the ‘Mahendra Singh Dhoni Pavilion’ at the JSCA Stadium, ahead of India’s third ODI against Australia.

“At the AGM last year, the decision was taken that the North Block stand that comprises media enclosure as well as VIP boxes would be named after Dhoni,” Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) secretary Debashis Chakraborty told PTI on Wednesday.


However, Dhoni didn’t agree to inaugurate the stand, said Chakraborty.

“We requested him but he said Dada apne hi ghar mein kya inaugurate karna (What’s there to inaugurate in my own house). He is still so humble and down to earth,” said Chakraborty.
