I’ll tell you exactly what you are thinking right now; it’s either this:
“Am so damn angry, I want to get my hands on this writer. What the hell is he thinking??? – DHONI FANATICS ASSOCIATION (DFA)
“Oh so this article will be interesting. Will share it with my friends.” – DHONI HATERS CLUB (DHC)
If you belong to the former group (DFA) we suggest you keep reading as this article will not disappoint you at all. If you belong to the latter (DHC), this article will make you understand why Mahendra Singh Dhoni is considered to be the greatest captain India has ever produced and you’ll know that it’s time to change the group ;).
In a career spanning over a decade, the Captain Cool has given us all the 3 Major ICC Trophies.
India’s performance under his reign was so terrible that the Indian Team achieved the no. 1 Test Status in 2009, a feat no other previous captain achieved.
Many critics would also agree with me on this point. He has the best record as an Indian Captain. A few facts to underpin my claim
He now holds the record of The Most No. of Victories in consecutive games in a World Cup as an Indian Captain (10 Wins)
He is the most successful Indian captain in terms of ODI victories playing away from home with 60 Victories
India completed the first ever series whitewash of Australia (4-0) in 2013
He comes at no. 6 and loves to bat under pressure. Have you all forgotten his innings against Sri Lanka in the World Cup final? or the recent against the Windies and Zimbabwe in the World Cup? We could go on with the list…
He averages a whooping 52.14 in ODIs. For a guy to come in at no. 6 and more often than not in crunch situations this is impeccable and unparallelled.
8. HIS COMMITMENT FOR TEAM INDIA IS PARAMOUNT
When asked if he would have rather preferred to stay in India as his wife was expecting, this is what he said
As If playing for India wasn’t good enough for him, this guy has won 2 IPL Trophies and 1 Champions League Trophy with Chennai Super Kings.
So the next time if someone tries to argue with you about Dhoni; keep calm and say, “Yeah you’re right” and make that person read this article.
Here’s a message to our Captain Cool:
“You’ve selflessly carried the responsibility of a zillion people’s dreams and given us more than we expected. Leading from the front you’ve taken the flak thrown at you as responsibly as you’ve appreciated the applause from the millions of cricket fans across India and across the globe. You’ve shown faith in your players and backed them when they needed it the most. You don’t break a sweat in crunch situations and make sure Team India wins while you’re on the field. Win or lose the World Cup; you’ve already made us witness some of the best moments of Cricket and we Thank You for that.”
