India finally has THE winning captain!

This would definitely be an offbeat post in this blog but this is something which I cannot withstand of sharing.

India today where impeccable in the semi finals of the Twenty20 world cup versus the unbeaten one day and test match cricket champions Australlia. India proved that this format was a different ball game to them after all. Having been favorites for a long time now India were far from being the favorites amongst the experts and commentators alike but fickle minded audience along with me were in the hoards of the simple yet amazingly brilliant and fresh Indian team which took storm after they chalked out Pakistan in the qualifiers and the unbeaten host South Africa in the quarter finals.

Now yet again they will brandishing their greatest strength to Pakistan in the grand finale. The greatest strength of the current Indian team is the dark horse in the form of a wicket keeper and in the boots of the caption, the wise and the visceral, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has showed the team how he can lead the path for the future of the Indian team and I believe that the long thirst of a great leader for the team is starting to quench. Dhoni is an example of quality leadership, hard work with dedication and getting the basic right. The most applaudable comment and the belief that he portrays in the game and off it is

 

If you believe you can do it , you will do it.

And yes, he had the done the same so far. From being the underdogs to now playing the final with their arch rival Pakistan yet again in the same world cup, Dhoni has paved a way for India heading for a glorious future in the upcoming seasons. Making him a captain for the ODI‘s as well just after his first stint as a captain in the very first match of the world cup was probably the best move ever made in the history of Indian cricket which till now has been the sorts of a puppet show run by corrupted souls.

I certainly would like to go Dhoni’s way in my way of doing things too. My earlier motto in any thing I did was “Where there is a will. there is a way” but I now agree that even though you have a will, if you believe you can do it, you will do it. The rest of it has already entered in the golden pages of history. Dhoni, I hope you stay that way for a long time to come.

Keep us amazed!

  1. Yes, Mahendra Dhoni has kept life that simple – If you believe you can do it, you’ll do it.

    What a revelation he has been!

    Both India and Pakistan have experienced troubled times in the past few years for different reasons and some similar ones. Today they both are in the finals of the first T20.

    Some may say it’s just T20 after all, but in the context of these two countries’ cricket problems this achievement cannot be underestimated.

    I’m happy India is shrugging away the past two horrible years finally and the future isn’t as daunting anymore.

    Oz is the gold standard of cricket. The shining sun…India just touched it today.

  2. Yea Soulberry, now is the time to set things right. We have got the right talent and its time to look for more of them. I regret that this had to be done in the previous ODI world cup itself but I am glad that its better late than never. 🙂

  3. Also spare a thought for the selectors. The wise men made a wise choice and positioned him for success by giving him a young team.

    Dhoni’s success is the face of change in India. Leaders from small town India making it big and making a difference.

  4. It was an incredible journey from a situation of almost certain loss against Pakistan to the three consecutive victories taking India to the finals. All the four games that India won were filled with excitement and playing under the lights made the experience all the more enjoyable.

    And here I was thinking that Technology and Cricket don’t mix!

  5. I think you are absolutely right and just hope that all the fame and success does not affect Dhoni in a negative way like it did to Gangully etc…
