BCCI nominates Dhoni for Padma Bhushan

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has nominated Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award, for his contribution to the game.

The Board has sent only one name for the Padma awards this year and it was a unanimous decision to nominate Dhoni, said a BCCI official.

Dhoni’s credentials are impeccable and as the only Indian captain with two World titles (2011 50-over World Cup and 2007 World T20), the BCCI did not have to ponder over likely names, added the official.

The BCCI has not sent any other nominations for the Padma awards this year.
