We all have noticed that superstar Mahendra Singh Dhoni takes the winning trophy and hands it over to the youngsters as soon as possible – to let them celebrate.

The former Indian captain Dhoni then takes a backseat. Consequently, we find him in the corner of most pictures witnessed so far.

Dhoni revealed being the leader of the side Chennai Super Kings, he gets the overexposure of extra 15 minutes with the trophy. Thus, he believes in passing the coveted trophy to his teammates.

Dhoni was right on the money once again:

Interestingly, Dhoni was spotted celebrating with his daughter Ziva after the Super Kings triumph in the recently held Indian Premier League (IPL). When all the players were busy posing with the IPL trophy, Dhoni was enjoying time with his daughter.

Meanwhile, Dhoni knows how he should get best out of his players. Men in Yellow were able to do a fine job as every player knew their respective roles.

The Chennai captain was once again able to deliver the goods to take his side to the third IPL title.

Meanwhile, Dhoni is the one who started the trend of passing the trophy to younger players. Similarly, we see current Indian skipper Virat Kohli following the same footsteps.

We have noticed that Indian team captain Kohli giving the trophy to young players like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Consequently, both of these spinners are instrumental in the success of limited-overs form in the contemporary cricket.

The  Super Kings Twitter handle took to social media platform to quote Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s statement.

“We all love the celebrations, but as captain you’ve already spent 15 minutes’ overexposure with the trophy. So I let them take centrestage with the trophy! – #Thala @msdhoni on why he quickly passes the trophy to the teammates. #whistlepodu.”
