With one unlikely decision in the final over of the T20 World Cup, MS Dhoni single-handedly created a new generation of cricket lovers 12 years ago.
Last night we witnessed the same magic, as he made his highest IPL score with 24 runs coming in the last over.
Icebergs want to grow up and be Dhoni.— Gaurav Kapur (@gauravkapur) April 21, 2019
Is there anyone better than MS Dhoni in world cricket when it comes to being there & finish off games ? It's not just about striking, it's about backing himself & being calculative. Top innings from him. Unfortunate to have lost by 1 run but Bloody Brilliant @ChennaiIPL #RCBvCSK— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) April 21, 2019
Uff! Some game! Cricket needs Dhoni to write its scripts.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 21, 2019
Don't know if he'll ever stand for an election in future. But if he does, I am going to vote for #Dhoni as my PM.— Kartik Dayanand (@KartikDayanand) April 21, 2019
His hunger and commitment to win is second to none. He makes the impossible seem so possible. He's a damn legend. #RCBvCSK
But let's go back to the start again.
It was the maiden T20 World Cup when he gave the last over to Joginder Sharma against everyone's expectations and rest, as they say, is history.
That was Dhoni's first assignment as a captain and it was an vision for what was to come. In the following years, Mahi led India to many victories and earned himself the title of a master finisher.
MS Dhoni is #TeamIndia's Floater and Number 4 in the #CWC2019 World Cup. If you don't think so, I guess you are on a different Planet. And Yeah there were people who said it's over for MS, he is finished, and they are hiding now and waiting for a failure to come out again #Dhoni— Prabhu (@Cricprabhu) April 21, 2019
From the iconic sixer that won us our second Word Cup.
To that unbelievable stumping in the 2016 World T20 that won us the match by a single run.
MS Dhoni took decisions and executed them to perfection every time.
Last night was sadly an exception, but he tried till the last ball and took us back to the good old times when stuff like this was much more common.
That may have been the most incredible last over in IPL history! #Dhoni— Vikram Chandra (@vikramchandra) April 21, 2019
