MS Dhoni gets playful with a pitch invader, makes his fan run for embrace during Nagpur ODI - See pics

Nagpur, March 6: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is among the fastest runners between the wickets in international cricket and the 37-year-old entertained the audiences with his fast running during the second one-day international between India and Australia.

The entire incident was captured by the cameras when the Indian cricket team walked into the field to defend their total of 250.

The man, clad in a white T-shirt printed 'Thala 7', ran after his idol, who relented after a few seconds and embraced him. The fan also touched Dhoni's feet before he was escorted out by a Vidarbha Cricket Association volunteer and a few security personnel.

India skipper Virat Kohli slammed his career's 40th ODI hundred and rescued his team. The target of 251 proved too much for the Australians as they were bundled out for 242 in 49.3 overs. Vijay Shankar, who scored his career-best 46 with the bat, picked up two wickets in the final over as India stunned the visitors to go 2-0 up in the five-match series.
