We human beings have the tendency to remain in the world of fantasy despite growing up and console our self for our shortcomings by dreaming big and chasing unrealistic goals.

Sometimes unrealistic goals do help people achieve great heights but most of the time it doesn’t work out the way they plan. But there is a certain human being who has defied all the odds and has gone on to a write a fairytale for himself and he is none other than Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

His journey from being a ticket collector in Kharagpur in 2001 to becoming the World Cup winning captain in 2007 has been nothing short of a fairytale. The way he rose through the ranks and took India to great heights as a captain will be etched in everyone’s memory for a long time to come. He has been the ideal leader who has led from the front in all aspects.

There is certainly no doubt about the fact that he is the twilight of his career but we all like to believe that Dhoni still has some more to offer to Indian cricket, especially given the fact Kohli hasn’t captained the side in too much limited over games. Kohli has gone up to him regularly and his inputs have been valuable for Kohli to grow himself as a captain.

There is a certain Rishabh Pant in the ranks who is giving Dhoni a tough competition but he is still a force to reckon with.

Here are 5  points which still suggest that Dhoni is still an indispensable part of the Indian limited overs team

1. He is still the best wicket keeper batsman around

Despite getting tough competition from young guns like Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson, there is no doubt about the fact that the former Indian captain still remains the best wicket keeper batsman in the country. His subtlety as a wicketkeeper has always helped him rise above the rest and his street smart instincts have always helped the team chalk out some exceptional dismissals.

He is the fastest behind the wickets and his ability to dislodge the bails within a whisker has been a feature of his wicket keeping. He has also taken some brilliant catches behind the wickets and is undoubtedly the best-limited overs keeper in the country.
