Guwahati: Former Indian skipper-captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has again shown his humble side while on his way to Dubai for the Indian Premier League (IPL) camp with Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Dhoni and many of his CSK teammates and staff members boarded the flight to UAE. They left Chennai for their preparations for the 13th edition of the IPL on Friday.
During the flight, Dhoni is said to have swapped his business class seat with an economy class passenger. Dhoni felt the CSK director George John's 'legs were too long' to fit in economy class seats.
The CSK director uploaded a video of the flight, "When a man who's seen it all, done it all in Cricket tells you, "Your legs are too long, sit in my seat (Business Class), I'll sit in Economy." The skipper never fails to amaze me. @msdhoni,". This tweet went viral and got likes even from the official Twitter account of the Chennai Super Kings.
