We see MS Dhoni always calm and relaxed on the field, thus we know he is Captain Cool.

The face of Indian cricket, MS Dhoni, is known as Captain Cool. A young guy who helped India win the World Twenty20 in 2007, the 50-over World Cup in 2011, and the Champions Trophy in 2013 is also profiled in this touching memoir. Mahi, our dear Mahi, was a great captain. His leadership abilities and the outcomes of his judgments were consistently evident on the field. On the pitch, magic must occur when Dhoni whispers something in the ears of his teammates.


On the field, Dhoni has displayed his sense of humor numerous times. The match between CSK and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Pune in 2018 was perhaps one of the best examples of Mahi’s sense of humor in action. Shikhar Dhawan of SRH pushed a full delivery from Harbhajan Singh onto the leg side, causing Dhoni to go after the ball to stop the batter from scoring two runs, while he was still in the batting position. Jadeja was probably responding to the shot a little slower than Dhoni was as he scooped up the ball, so he nodded toward him.

Winning moment of CSK

When CSK beat SRH in the 2018 IPL final, he left the squad to celebrate with his (then) three-year-old daughter Ziva instead, which received a lot of positive feedback from online users. Nothing is arguably more important to Dhoni than his family, yet Ziva raced right into her adoring father’s arms as he demonstrated his dedication on the field.

CSK won IPL against RCB

The first Indian captain to win the IPL trophy in 2010, Dhoni then became the first captain to defend the title in 2011, defeating an in-form Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the final. Dhoni had previously lost the final in 2008 and been eliminated from the semi-finals in 2009. When Rohit Sharma won back-to-back championships in 2020, Rohit Sharma accomplished a rare milestone for the first time.


India did not win the T20 world cup competition after falling to West Indies in the semifinals. However, Dhoni led the team brilliantly once more in his final ICC match as captain, and India’s one-run victory over Bangladesh had several Dhoni moments that will live on in history. The highlights included Dhoni’s incredible stumping to dismiss Sabbir Rahman, his fielding decisions in the penultimate over, and a run-out on the final ball.

2011 India vs Srilanka World Cup

Prior to India, Sri Lanka set a challenging objective of 274 runs. As the game reached its conclusion and the entire stadium began to perspire, Dhoni, who had replaced Yuvraj Singh at number 5, smashed a six that made history and brought the world cup home.
