Another award for Dhoni

February 03, 2009 21:08 IST

Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Alma Mater St Xavier's College will confer its famous student with its first 'Youth Icon' award during the institute's three-day carnival begining on February 5.

"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 said in Ranchi on Tuesday.

"We are trying to contact Dhoni's family to receive the award on his behalf," he said.

Dhoni is presently leading Team India against Sri Lanka in the one-day series.

Dhoni had last year enrolled himself in the college to complete his degree course in Office Management.
