After Mumbai Cricket Association Apex Council wrote a letter to the MCA proposing that it might dedicate a seat, permanently, where the ball landed (when MS Dhoni hit the winning six) to celebrate Dhoni’s achievements, former India fast bowler Ajit Agarkar has fueled the proposal and said no one will have a problem.

MS Dhoni, in the night of the 2011 World Cup final, hit a six of Nuwan Kulasekara to help India clinch the mega prize. The moment has been etched in the minds of cricket fans and they want the MCA Apex Council wants to honour the 2011 World Cup winning captain with a permanent seat in the house.

“I don’t think anyone would have a problem if the seat at Wankhede Stadium is named after MS Dhoni after that particular shot. It was a historic one as it took India 28 years to win the World Cup again,” Agarkar said on Star Sports show Cricket Connected.

 Dhoni made a big name for himself by making the country proud with his achievements after coming from the cricketing backwaters of Ranchi. He has achieved immense success as a player and also grew up to be one of the most successful captains and achieved almost everything the ICC tournaments had to offer.

All the success had made him one of the most influential person on the cricketing circuit but he was not the same when he was first introduced to the national team. Besides that, MS Dhoni has also been the go-to man for his teammates whenever he was on the field.

Dhoni understood the game well. He knew the strength of the side and backs his players accordingly. He did not takes any kind of frivolous decisions and likes to maintain his calm. It is due to these qualities Dhoni came up as one of the most calm and composed character on the cricket field.
