Isn't it iconic?


The awards keep coming thick and fast for the current Indian captain. On the day India swept to an ODI series win in Sri Lanka, it was announced that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's alma mater St Xavier's College, Ranchi, will present him with its first 'Youth Icon' award during the institute's three-day carnival.

"This will be the first-ever award being conferred to any student in the college's 49-year-old history to encourage all the students to show their prowess," college dean Jayant Sinha told PTI. "We are trying to contact Dhoni's family to receive the award on his behalf." Dhoni, who had enrolled himself in the college last year to complete his degree course in office management, won't be able to receive the award personally since he is currently in Sri Lanka.
