MS Is the only captain to win all the major trophies as a captain. No one before him or after that has done this.
The stats are all in all enough to show his leadership skills. A boy turned from a goalkeeper to the greatest finisher and one the best finisher was discovered by the sports teacher of Dhoni’s school who is also the first coach of his childhood. When he was in his twelve class exam he had to either play or give the exam, but he came up with a brilliant idea of finishing his paper around 12 and then ran for the match while his friends waiting for him on a bike.
The veteran batsman keep failing and failing and after a long hardship he got the job of a TT at Kharagpur station for his cricketing background. But the ranchi born was never happy about that and used to question himself what he was doing there.
And his questioning and prayers were at last answered after one year of his job when he got the chance to play a selection match where he showed what the tremendous batsman he was! Ms was then called for the tour of Bangladesh. But on his first tour he failed to perform and his selection was questioned by the media because of his unorthodox keeping style and batting. Yet Sachin Tendulkar and the then captain Sourav Ganguly stood by him. They saw a spark in him and knew he was a real gem.
The keeper batsman was again choosen for the tour of Pakistan although the media and fans were against it, captain Sourav and Sachin Tendulkar backed him. Saurav knew how to bring a young talent to light, so on that tour in a game he decided to give his batting position to MS and the later just grabbed the opportunity to score his maiden hundred and warned the cricket World of his starts. And after that he never looked back.
In 2007 he was made the captain of the Indian team which he grabbed to showcase his leadership skill and won the 2007 T-20 world cup for the very first time. During his captaincy team India was fantabulous and became number one test team.
The 2011 world cup in India and 2013 Champions trophy in England are also his captaincy show where he took a lot of courageous decision and showed the world why he is one of the best captain. The Keeper batsman took charge of the team in three formats until 2014 when he declared his retirement from the test team but continued to play the 50 and 20 over matches. And in 2017 he finally stepped down from captaincy but continued to serve his country as a experience keeper and the best finisher.
His excilence and quick thinking with even quicker assessment gave the must needed support in many tight situation and helped his team to go over the line. He was an inevitable part of team india for around 17-18 years in a row until in 2020 when he announced his retirement.
Though he played his last match in almost a year before 2019 where he almost took India over the line against a great New Zealand side he didn’t talk about his retirement then. Thus the greatest captain of Indian team put up his shoes in 2020.
And this is how the story which began with a runout ended up in a run out. But he is playing IPL & enjoying himself there. And even now when he walks to bat the Stadium as well as all his fans chant Dhoniiiiiiii Dhoniiiiii. Dhoniiiii Dhoniiiiiii.
