MS Dhoni’s legacy as a captain on the cricket field is unparalleled and he is considered one of the best skippers that India has ever had. MS Dhoni led India to victory in their first T20 World Cup, followed by another World Cup win in the 50-over format and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013.

Moreover, MS Dhoni is also among the most successful captains in the Indian Premier League (IPL), with only Rohit Sharma having more titles to his name. Under Dhoni’s leadership, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have won four IPL trophies. It’s natural for young cricketers to aspire to be like Dhoni, and one such incident involving a budding CSK player, Shaik Rasheed, had left him emotional.

“When I was around eight years old, it was my birthday and I told my dad that I wanted a Reebok bat. It was Dhoni bhai who used to use that bat and we didn’t have that much money that time. So we could not buy that bat. After that, for an entire day, I was just crying,”

“I was a ball boy during one of the games where I saw someone use that Reebok bat and somehow I couldn’t control my emotions. I really wanted to play with that bat.”
