The Dhoni phenomenon

Mahendra Singh DhoniHe is the newest poster boy of the cricket world. A daredevil with a pleasing demeanour, his understanding of the game has made him a force to reckon with, writes Gopal Sharma


At a time when the Indian cricket team is in the transition period with so many young and talented players from unknown places making their presence felt, the charismatic Mahendra Singh Dhoni has come as a whiff of fresh air. He has invigorated the Indian team buffeted by the departure of Sourav Ganguly, recurring injuries to Sachin Tendulkar and the indifferent form of Virender Sehwag. The success of Dhoni has been the single most important factor in India winning 22 ODIs out of the 32 they have played under Greg Chappell.
