Mahendra Singh Dhoni started his career with a duck

M.S.Dhoni did not start his ODI career on a successful note. He started his ODI career against Bangladesh in 2004 with a duck. Worse he was run out after playing one ball. It was a trying time for M.S since Rahul Dravid was in as a part-time wicketkeeper and there was Parthiv Patel also just waiting to be selected. However, the selectors had faith, and he was selected for the upcoming all-important Pakistan series.


MS Dhoni is Mr Cool in the true sense and never sledges

M.S.Dhoni evokes respect as well as extreme emotions within his rivals. His cool demeanour is never unruffled even after facing the worst kind of sledging and never retorts back. Instead, he does his bat to do the job. Remember how he thrashed Shahid Afridi for an incredible 4,6,4,4,6,6,4 after he abused him in the India vs. Pakistan 2nd ODI 2005 at Vishakhapatnam.
