] Dhoni and Chennai are a marriage made in heaven. On one hand , you have the next big thing of World Cricket waiting find his den after maturing into a Lion and on the other hand, you have one of the most starving , passionate , knowledgeable and least rewarded fans in the Country ! Even Shakespeare could not have written this script !!
First of all , Hats off to Dhoni for sticking up to Siva Mani at the end of the Super Kings victory at Bangalore ! Those Kanadigas could not stand Sivamani celebrating with the team in the middle of the pitch and boy , Dhoni acted like a real hero there while the rest were having fun ! He went and asked the security to not mess with Sivamani. It was great to see those two embracing each other during the presentation ceremony.
Second of all , is Dhoni India's finest captain ever ( or at least , the finest captain ever in the making ) or what ?? IMO He is already ! No point waiting 10 years and then deciding because we have seen enough . Just look at the way he handled the team today ! Firstly , his batting and the responsibility he showed ! Secondly , his fielding changes and handling of bowlers under pressure . Thirdly , the way he maintained calm after every wicket ! I'm glad we paid so much for him and I'm glad we don't have an washed up over rated over supported and over loved star like how many other states have ! We have someone who has attained stardom in the hard way like Sachin and will be responsible as a role model in this country.We can rightfully and proudly call him our adopted son !!
Last but not the least , did you see the way Dhoni spoke yet again in post match presentation ? Has there ever been this blatantly honest a Captain for the game ? He openly admits the flaws of this team and is so down to earth about the game . He does not mince his words and does not speak to entertain the crowd or boost his image ! He openly said that our bowling is weak and also talked about how it might sound funny but the bowlers didnt shine the ball enough ( thats a great point ! ) Has there been a bigger boon and reason for this country to forget the era of Dravid , Ganguly , Laxman etc and start looking to a new era with Dhoni as the leader ? I don't think so :) Dhoni is as good as you get . Even Ricky Ponting didn't make Hayden and Hussey speak in awe about him like how they did about Dhoni today :)
Thats good ol M.S.Dhoni for you . THE ADOPTED SON OF CHENNAI :)
