There is hardly a day former India skipper MS Dhoni steps out on a cricket field and does not win hearts. Over the last 15 years, Dhoni has gone on to become one of the most loved cricketers not only in the country but in the world. On Friday, he sent Twitter into a frenzy after BCCI posted pictures of him bowling with a sidearm in the India nets.

Numerous netizens were in complete awe of him, calling him a ‘specialist in everything'. Such comments came after Dhoni could be seen giving wicketkeeper drills to Rishabh Pant on the sidelines of India's warm-up game against Australia and mentoring Ishan Kishan before the first practice game against England.

As expected, these pictures melted his fans' hearts, who flocked to the micro-blogging site in huge numbers to show their love and appreciation for him:
