Captain cool MS Dhoni is world's 9th most marketable sportsperson
Although right now team India's sensational ODI captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not playing cricket, but, he is still creating waves. 'Captain Cool' has made it to the top 10 in the list of the most marketable sportsperson of the year 2015. In this fray, he has beaten Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Kobe Bryant, Maria Sharapova, Usain Bolt, Neymar and Andy Murray

The list released by the London School of Marketing has shown Dhoni as the ninth-most marketable sportsperson in the world. It is really heartening to see India's most successful cricket captain, 34-year-old MS Dhoni was ranked just below the world number one tennis player Novak Djokovic, with Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer appearing on the top of the 20-players list. Federer edged out Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and LeBron James.

It is noteworthy that Dhoni has now surpassed the likes of Wimbledon 2015 champion Novak Djokovic and Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar in the latest list of world's 100 richest sportspersons, released by the Forbes magazine earlier this year.

According to the Forbes list, MS Dhoni is ranked 31st, Djokovic (62nd), Bolt (63rd) and Tendulkar (78th). MS Dhoni, who has got a huge fan following, has far exceeded world's most popular footballer in terms of earnings through endorsements.

Although, CSK, one of  the prominent IPL franchises where MS Dhoni is the captain, has been subject of  a controversy arising out of notorious spot fixing scandal, but millions of Dhoni's fans must be feeling happy to see him making place among some top players.
