Former India skipper MS Dhoni is conferred with the Padma Bhushan by the President of India Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. 

Interestingly, it was on the very same day back in 2011 that Dhoni launched pacer Nuwan Kulasekara for a whacking six over the long-on to end India's 28-year-old wait and helped his team lift the coveted World Cup trophy in front of a jam-packed Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets to lift their second World Cup title. The spectacular victory sent the entire nation into a frenzy as people took to the streets to celebrate Indias victory.
