He is the type of person always choose country first and family next. He is a real gift to Indian cricket team.

Here is a small incident of his good qualities which is explained by our very own Indian Cricket legend VVS Laxman in a single sentence.
India vs Australia 5th ODI 2016
Rohit Sharma just got out on 99 runs , in comes Mahendra Singh Dhoni to face the next ball. Hastings is the bowler and it was a straight delivery pitched on middle stump line which rapped on the pads of MSD , there goes the big appeal from the bowler. But umpire not convinced with him and gives NOT OUT. Now, Hastings move towards MSD and asked whether he nicked it , MSD says YES , hastings is more satisfied with MSD answer rather than umpire and went to his bowling run up .
Now VVS Laxman on air :
” John Hastings has been a part of CSK, whoever plays with dhoni or against dhoni knows what character MS Dhoni is “
This says that Dhoni never cheats in the Gentleman game and it is one his best ever quality a player should have on the field.
Even God Of Cricket said “Dhoni is the best captain i have played under ” , this sums it all.
Well, he had haters too in his country but they always outdone by his billions of fans love towards him.
