MS DHONI:The Legend

MS Dhoni's life story


Mahendra Singh Dhoni was born on  July 7, 1981, as one of three children to his parents Prem Kohli and Devaki Devi, in the Indian province of Jharkhand formerly called Ranchi, Bihar.

 His father, Prem Kohli worked in various junior levels precisely under management in the Indian engineering firm, MECON

As a young boy, MS Dhoni has always been interested in cricket. He admired ex cricket player, Adam Gilchrist

MS Dhoni attended Jawahar Vidya Mandir, a public school in India.

 At the school, he excelled at various sports such as badminton and football

As a result, he was chosen to represent his school for various tournaments held in the district. 

While playing as a goalkeeper for his school’s football side, his coach instructed him to join a local cricket team, the Commando cricket club. 

Without prior experience in the sport, MS Dhoni put up an incredible performance for a wicket-keeper.

He played in various tournaments with the team, such as the Vinoo Mankad Trophy Under-16 Championship held in the 1997/98 season. 

In 2001, MS Dhoni worked as a Ticket Examiner at Kharagpur railway station

Though he was an honest person as his colleagues attest to it, MS Dhoni was a mischievous individual.

 An incident that points to this fact, was when he and some colleagues fooled the security personnel at the railway station that ghost was walking about when they wrapped themselves in white bedsheets.

ODI Career

  1. Following his superb performance in first-class cricket, M. S. Dhoni was selected to play in the national ODI team for India's tour of Bangladesh in 2004-05. Unfortunately, he got run out for a duck in his debut match and could not perform very well during the rest of the series.
  2. Despite the poor performance in his debut series, the selectors showed faith in him by selecting him for the Pakistan ODI series that followed. Dhoni didn't disappoint them as he scored a record-breaking 148, most by an Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, in his fifth ODI match.
  3. Dhoni, who did not get enough opportunities to bat in the first two matches of the India-Sri Lanka bilateral series, was promoted in the batting order for the third match of the series. 
  4. He utilized the opportunity fully by scoring a speedy 183 not out off 145 balls while chasing a target of 299. He broke a number of records during the series and was named Man of the Series for his performance
  5. During 2009, he scored 1198 runs in just 24 innings to equal Ricky Ponting's score in 30 innings in that calendar year. He also stayed at the top of the ICC ODI Batsman rankings for several months in 2009.
  6. He led India to victory in the 2011 World Cup. In the final match against Sri Lanka, he promoted himself up the batting order and played a match-winning knock of 91 not out.
  7. In 2013, he captained India to victory in the ICC Champions Trophy and became the only captain to have won all the ICC trophies, i.e Test Mace, ODI World Cup, and Champions Trophy.
