As of now, we know the story of MS Dhoni and his struggles that made him a legend. Many players are called great player but MS Dhoni is not a great player. Why is it so? A legend is a great player. Isn't it? Let's check out the difference between a legend and a great player.

Who Are Great Players?

Great players are the ones who perform brilliantly in their respective areas. In the case of cricket, it may be batting, bowling, fielding or combination of any two or all the three areas.

They have the talent and the game to change the match with their contribution. Their performance is seen by every individual and appreciated when they have won the match for the team.

Who Are Legends?

Legends are different from great players. They are also the one who performs brilliantly but they also know how to get the best from the underrated or out of form player. 

They seal key moments in the match that helps the team to win the match. The impact that legends make in the match is much more powerful. Performance and achievements are appreciated after a very long time also.

Why is MS Dhoni a Legend?

MS Dhoni leads from the front and sets an example by his performance. He gives chances to the players who are out of form. Remember the time when Ashwin and Jadeja were called CSK quota players in the Indian team. They are now the greatest players in Test Cricket and have won many matches for the team.

He always stands in the corner while the team clicks a photo after series win. He always gives the trophy to the youngsters as they need to feel the moment more than him.  

At times when the team loses, he goes into the interview and protects youngsters from the Media.
