Over the years, the fans have witnessed the might of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s mighty willow. The man who began his career in the worst possible manner, getting run-out for a duck has written one of the most beautiful chapters in the history of Indian cricket.

The talismanic leader from Ranchi is predominantly hailed for his unprecedented success as the skipper of Team India but there is absolutely no denying the fact that his stature as one of the finest limited-overs batsman is right up there with the best in the history. India’s man for all occasions in the coloured jersey, Dhoni’s average in One-Day Internationals is still over 50 as he finds himself on the brink of joining the elite list of few legendary batsmen who have crossed the 10,000-run mark in the 50-over cricket.

India’s most decorated skipper entered the international scene as a long-haired and fearless unorthodox batsman and became an instant crowd favourite after slamming a majestic 148 in only his 5th ODI against Pakistan. Within a year of his debut, he scored 183 against Sri Lanka and never looked back. Laurels as both batsman and a skipper continued to come every now and then as he kept on adding feathers on his cap and the six over long-on at the Wankhede in 2011 World Cup final perhaps sealed his stature as one of the finest for India.

In the last decade or so, we have seen the hard-hitting batsman sending chills down the spine of the bowlers with his ferocious right-handed batting but have you ever imagined how would the 35-year old perform as a left-handed batsman. Well, Dhoni would obviously not bat left-handed in a match but here we are showing you a clip of him butchering the bowlers as a southpaw.




    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
