There isn’t a man in the international cricket circuit quite like MS Dhoni. He has done it all in the circuit and has the hunger to do a lot more. Every time you write this man off, he comes back and once again does something impeccable which no one thinks he can do but then he always comes back. The biggest testament to that is the way he played the CSK matches 2021. He made sure that his team went deep and were the champions and this after his team finished at the very bottom in the previous edition. You never write him off is the biggest lesson that needs to be taken for everyone making their match predictions. This is a man who has more trophies in his cabinet than an average person has cutlery and that is the reason that he is perhaps the biggest winner of them all in international cricket. There is no reason to doubt him but he has always had his share of critics. There are those who have also wanted him to retire a long time ago but as he always keeps proving again and again, he is the man for the job and he always turns up on the big occasion. When the chips were down for the CSK team in the qualifier against the Delhi Capitals, you saw him coming and taking the game by the scruff of its neck and scoring a match winning 19 of 6 which took his team to the finals. In the final too, you saw an animated captain who wanted everything to go according to plan till the last ball. This is a captain who has done it all and it is this trait that really gets him to be the person who dominates world cricket in the modern era.
Now he steps into this new role of being a mentor for the world cup and the man who has a world cup to his name along with a champions trophy and a T20 world cup title to his name is perhaps the best person to be considered when it comes to the mentor’s role in the Indian team. We know that his playing days are behind him and there isn’t too much long before he takes the yellow jersey off too but there is no one who knows tactics and strategies better than MS Dhoni. He is a person who makes a lot of players perform better than they know. Look at what he did with Robin Uthappa who certainly would have thought that his best days were behind him but he made sure that the batsman was back in form and even though he dropped Suresh Raina who is perhaps the biggest player that CSK has seen, we saw Uthappa dominate the two big games and perform really well. He is the kind of person who you would look at as a source of inspiration when it comes to the big games. There isn’t nothing that you would expect less than a win from this legend and in the coming years too, there is a lot that CSK would desire to get from him.
Even his biggest critics have not been able to take this one thing away from him and that is the fact that he knows how to win. And perhaps in the modern history of cricket that is something that he knows how to do better than everyone else. So, there is no reason why you would not call him the legend of all legends
