BCCI nominated Mahendra Singh Dhoni for Padma Bhushan Award. However, National Media confirms chances of MSD bagging the prestigious honour looks bleak.

This isn't the first time BCCI recommended Dhoni's name for Padma Bhushan. The proposal was rejected in both 2013 and 2016.

In 2013, Dhoni's Name surfaced in the spot-fixing and betting scandal of IPL as he was the skipper of Chennai Super Kings. However, He obtained a clean chit from the investigative team.

If the reports are true, Sports Ministry has turned down the proposal for the third time as well.

Under Dhoni's captaincy, India won 2007 ICC T20 World Cup & 2011 ICC ODI World Cup. Recently, He achieved a record 100 stumpings & also holds the record for most number of not-outs.
