MS Dhoni, also known as Mahi, Captain Cool, the best wicketkeeper in the world, is the hero of India and has made Indian proud. In his captaincy, India won the 2011 World-Cup.  At the last moments of Final match between India and Sri Lanka on 2nd April 2011, India only 43 runs to win in 50 balls. The pair, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh proceeded at a fair clip and with Yuvraj on 21, Nuwan Kulasekara od Sri Lanka ran into the bowl to Mahi. After some time, there were 11 balls to go and only 3 runs needed for victory. Dhoni looked around, settled down serenely, then with an unexpected viciousness in his swing, launched into Kulasekhara with a trademark helicopter shot. And then India won the World Cup in 2011. Happy birthday to this epic cricketer!


His has been an astounding story that has the additional stardust of a biopic that made in excess of 100 crores in the cinematic world. Dhoni drove India to its maiden and just (as of not long ago) World Twenty20 title triumph at South Africa in 2007. Later in 2011, he tied down a splendid run-pursue against Sri Lanka and helped his side secure the World Cup at Mumbai. In 2013, he and his men held onto the ICC Champions Trophy in England. The cup of happiness had genuinely overflowed.

More than those epochal triumphs and the numbers he scratched - driving India in a record 199 ODIs (winning 110 and losing 74) and steering the crew in 72 Twenty20 Internationals (41, 28) – what remains is the self-conviction and certainty that he instilled into the Men dressed in Blue. Until his administration intuition came into the show, Indians were surrendered to get nostalgic just about the 1983 World Cup win built by Kapil Dev's men. Presently we have 2007 and 2011 additionally in our rundown of restricted overs' pinnacles.

Dhoni has been a finished bundle in ODIs and Twenty20Is. Fortunately, he is as yet accessible as a player and Virat Kohli can doubtlessly incline toward his ancestor for initiative sources of info. Later on, another BCCI official statement may break the report about his retirement as an ODI player. Up to that point, the time has come to praise a really one of a kind cricketer. Furthermore, as the colloquialism goes – a legend never resigns, the recollections remain. He truly has Midas touch.

Now the talented wicketkeeper, the captain has announced his retirement, the BCCI gave an official statement and the world found a workable pace India's most prominent constrained overs' captain had chosen to surrender his captaincy. Ordinary of the man, who puts stock in offering striking expressions with the bat and other cricketing deeds on the turf, however, would prefer to remain mum off the field, his venturing down from the position of authority was spread into the data parkway by the BCCI.

There is most likely an example to the way Dhoni times his 'I-take-your-leave' moves - saturated with mystery and handed out with bits of shock. In December 2014, he resigned from Tests after the Melbourne game against Australia. A post-coordinate question and answer session in which he fronted up to the media in his standard 'chief' symbol was trailed by an official statement expressing that he had resigned from the game's longest organization. Be it hammering helicopter sixes or saying goodbye, Dhoni most likely springs to the brain.
