Bringing India to the top and making it one of the best teams internationally, taking decisions that no one can expect, winning almost the lost games, all this was done by the only man, M.S.Dhoni. The path he decided to walk on was not easy at all. He directed the Indian team not in the right direction, but in a new direction where no captain had headed.
Years passed, captains changed, but the belief in Thala is constant. Whenever M.S.Dhoni is on strike if the team needs 14 runs in an over then the bowler is under pressure. This type of fear was built among bowlers, yet he is the most respected player.
Dhoni was the first captain to win the World cup, Champions Trophy, and T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup changed the perspective of every nation towards India. In the guidance of Dhoni, India achieved more than anyone could have asked for.
Greg Chappell on Dhoni
After Dhoni’s retirement, former coach of India, Greg Chappell stated Dhoni was the best captain in the last 50 years. He added Dhoni is calm and funny, he likes his cheeky behavior. Greg liked to throw challenges on Dhoni, and he always passed all those challenges successfully.
The fact is if you are not pissed at the player for dropping catches on the field, just you are calm and motivating all the players, then they will give their best, and this is what M.S. believes in.
Facts about Dhoni
Apart from being the only Captain to win all three ICC Cups, Dhoni has Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri and he has Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award and the most honorable achievement is that he is “Lieutenant Colonel”. His trophy cabinet is overflowing, excluding all this, he has many trophies.
After all, Dhoni is retired now, he started his international career with a run-out and ended in the same way.
Will the Thala Fans witness a Farewell Match?
From BCCI as well as from Dhoni, nothing is yet clear. Dhoni wanted to be a part of the T20 World Cup for one last time which was going to be held in Australia, but that too got postponed. Nonetheless, IPL awaits M.S. Dhoni.
