The first trailer for ‘MS Dhoni: the untold story’ has been released. After a brief lull, Dhoni mania is again upon us. Here are 5 reasons why we love MS Dhoni.
1) Captain Cool
Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni are two of the most successful captains of the 21st century. However, this is where the similarity ends. While Ganguly was an elegant left handed batsman, who could ball a bit. Dhoni is as unorthodox as you can get. Also he is a wicket keeper.

One can also point out that Dhoni has always been one of the fittest cricketers around. This is in stark contrast to Ganguly who regularly had fitness issues.
However, the biggest difference between the two is their demeanour during captaincy. Ganguly was prone to losing his cool on the field and generally gave the impression that he was carrying the weight of the country on his shoulders.
Dhoni, on the other hand, rarely betrays emotion on the field. Looking solely at Dhoni’s expressions, an uninformed observer would be hard pressed to determine the situation of the match. This has led to numerous last over victories for India under Dhoni.
Say what you will. This serene attitude has been a refreshing change.
