So finally an era in Indian Cricket has just ended when Mahendra Singh Dhoni decided to take retirement from his iconic captainship two days back. He entered the team when Cricketing legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly were leading the team. To play with them make a place for himself and eventually become their Captain would now be including into one of the best cricketing legends. Yuvraj Singh was supposedly going to be the next Indian Cricket Captain that time but Dhoni entered the scene suddenly and rest is history.
‘Dhoni led by example, not rhetoric’ – Dravid said once and Sachin preferred him over Yuvraj for captaincy.
How we all loved his long hairs and his love for the dogs? Wasn’t it something? He would go to security dogs during the matches and make friends with them easily. Sam and Zarah are his best friends since long. They are just not dogs but family members to him.
He said once ” I have three dogs back at home. Even after winning or losing a series they treat me the same way.”
Mahendra Singh love for the bikes splashed papers always and his pictures with his bikes made pretty girls go crazy.
There was a time when Indian Cricket Team was looking for a good wicket keeper who can bat and there came Dhoni who batted like a rockstar and did wicket keeping like no one ever did and He also captained the team to the best of the successes Indian team ever had.People said he can’t play test cricket as he’s a striking batsman and he made centuries in Test matches too.
‘ It seems like defying the odds is some kind of hobby to him.’
He was ‘Captain Cool’. One of the most successful captains Indian Cricket team has ever seen. One who put an end to India’s 28-year World Cup drought when he led his team to glory in the 2011 World Cup giving India a reason to celebrate amongst many other victories under his leadership.
His first remarkable victory as a Captain was winning of T 20 Cricket world cup2007 which he achieved with a relatively young team. He has provided a direction to Indian Cricket team which no other Indian Cricket Captain could ever provide.
Many people achieve success in life what is so new to that if Dhoni proved successful you can say easily but maintaining calm and striking a perfect balance between professional and personal life that you be known as a best father,best husband,best leader and best friend is something not many can achieve!
Dhoni married Sakshi Singh Rawat, his schoolmate in DAV Jawahar Vidya Mandir, Shyamali Ranchi Jharkhand on 4 July 2010.At the time of their wedding, she was studying hotel management and was working as a trainee at the Taj Bengal Kolkata.

He says he’s definitely like to spend more time actively during his Army duty once he retires from Cricket.
Here are some rare pictures from his early life which show how extra-ordinary his journey have been to reach this far and become a legend forever. Coming from such a humble background and rising to this country’s best and achieve who only few on this planet has achieved truly make him exceptional.
Though don’t be much sad. It’s just he’s leaving the captaincy not cricket for ever. In Fact we should now expect to see the best of cricket that he has to offer to us. Some more helicopter shots and some more fastest running between the wickets. That is Dhoni for us.
