A die-hard fan of Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni has opened a garage here in the cricketer's name and unfailingly distributes sweets whenever Dhoni plays well.

Jitendra Chandravansi, in his thirties, opened the Goodwill Dhoni Motor Workshop in Ranchi's Bariatu locality earlier this month and hopes Dhoni will get his vehicle serviced in the garage some day.

"I have heard that Dhoni likes driving. I hope he will avail the services of my garage one day," said Jitendra.

The garage owner watches cricket regularly and he became a fan of Dhoni when the cricketer hit a century against Pakistan last year.

"Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf praised his batting and his hairstyle. I decided to open a garage in Dhoni's name with a desire to meet him in my garage," Jitendra said.

He added that many Dhoni fans come to his motor workshop.

"Vehicle owners who are fans of Dhoni come to my garage. We talk in length about Dhoni's wicket keeping and batting. When he plays well in a match we distribute sweets among the garage workers and customers," remarked Jitendra.
