Want to be a professional cricketer?
Mahendra Singh Dhoni or MS Dhoni is one of the greatest cricketers in international cricket history. He is one of the greatest wicketkeepers and batsmen with the rare successful finishing ability. Apart from this, he was also one of the greatest captains in international cricket history. He is the only captain who has won three different ICC trophies (2007 ICC World T20, 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup and 2013 ICC Champions Trophy).
However, MS Dhoni is far more famous for his behaviour. He is a very cool and calm nature who maintains this character even in the toughest situations.
But MS Dhoni has also faced tough moments in his cricket career. Some of those were the hardest for anyone. However, once again, the cool MS Dhoni has beaten those hurdles calmly and continued his successful career. Let’s take a look at the toughest decisions of MS Dhoni.
4. Post-2007 ICC Cricket World Cup
The previous edition’s runners-up (2003) India were in the Group B along with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Bermuda. In their opening match of the 2007 CWC, India suffered a shocking defeat against Bangladesh. Later, India managed to secure a giant victory against Bermuda but failed to beat Sri Lanka in the final Group Stage match.
The Indian cricketers faced massive backlashes in the nation. Some of the Indian cricketers’ families faced public harassment. Political activists of JMM (Jharkhand Mukti Morcha) attacked MS Dhoni’s house, including stone-pelting. Dhoni was playing his first Cricket World Cup, and he was playing the role of wicketkeeper-batsman.
Just a few months later, India won the inaugural ICC World T20 (2007), under MS Dhoni’s captaincy. It was only the beginning of India’s greatest period in international cricket history.
