M.S Dhoni: Proving critics wrong since 2007

MS Dhoni

 

The former Indian captain has not been in the best of forms lately. M.S Dhoni has built a reputation for himself of being the best finisher in the world. Lately, he has been criticized a lot by former cricketers regarding his ability. Questions have been raised as to whether he should still be playing the shorter format of the game.

T20 World Cup

In 2007, when Dhoni was made the captain of the Indian Cricket Team for the T20 World Cup, there were pretty harsh comments on his ability to lead the side. But the man Dhoni is, as humble and cool anyone can be, he never spoke a word and proved everyone wrong on the field by his game. He won the T20 World Cup for India and established a new generation of players that no longer fit in the typical Indian player outlook.

 

50-50 World Cup and ICC Champions Trophy

No one can forget the winning six in the 2011 50 over World Cup. He promoted himself up the order and led from the front. He played a calculated innings of 91 in a high pressure game. His knock showed his character and his ability to remain cool at the time when many would scratch their heads. His legacy is not only curtailed to the world cups. He even led the Indian Cricket Team, who were considered underdog in the tournament, to the ICC Champions Trophy title in 2013. In IPL too, he has successful led his side Chennai Super Kings to 2 titles.

 

IPL criticism

He has proving everyone doubting his abilities wrong, since the day he took the captaincy of the Indian Cricket Team. This entire legacy is still not enough for people, who raise questions. People have been asking him questions and he has been answering them in the best possible manner, by scoring runs with his bat and doing extraordinary work behind the stumps. This year in IPL, he didn’t quite get himself enough runs. Again people started asking questions, whether he should continue playing.

 

Answering his critics

Today his answered the world again, what they wanted to hear through the sound of his bat. He came to bat at number 4 and murdered the ball over the park. He scored 61 off 34 balls and played like the Dhoni we all know. He is back in form now which is not a good sign for his opponents and surely not a good sign for his critics, who keep popping questions all the time.

 

Start respecting his legacy

MS Dhoni

It is time now that we appreciate the efforts he has put in and the legacy he has built. Questioning him all the time is certainly a disgrace to all that he has achieved. This is not a way to treat a legend. We should be thankful to him for the glory he has brought to Indian Cricket. Not only this, he has build a team that can beat anyone in the world in any conditions. India never had a team like this and if it wasn’t for M.S Dhoni, India would have been distant away from such stature. He silently moved away from the captaincy when he thought Kohli was ready for the captaincy, showing no selfishness. So, if we can’t respect the man then, we should not dishonour what he has done for the country.
