Dhoni was able to produce results.
Dhoni’s methods were simple and he had conveyed the same to the selectors as soon as he took over the baton of captaincy. He wanted to take Indian cricket to great heights and he made sure that he put his best efforts.
Dhoni always wanted an athletic team which would have been fast on the field. He wanted the best fielders and those who were not up to the mark were left out of the squad. Dhoni wanted to make an impact from the get-go and his vision was clear as a crystal.
Subsequently, Dhoni backed the players he wanted in his team. He knew it would be worth it to invest in the young blood and the team was able to borne fruits after some time.
