Dear Aspirants, this is truly a fan moment and tribute for Mahi Bhai not like exam related post. Yes, all of you hear the heart-breaking words from our Mahendra Singh Dhoni. All the cricket lovers accept this, the name Dhoni is not just a name its an emotion. Even now itself the thunder echo of Name Dhoni at the stadium is sounding in my ears. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is part of inspiration for all young budding cricketers. Our Indian Cricket is never complete without even pronounce the name Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Yes, surely Dhoni retirement is a big big loss for Indian Cricket. But this is the decision of our Mahi Bhai so as like as DRS decision of MSD we could accept this MSD Retirement decision also.

Surely this line from MSD broke many of his fans heart. But one thing is true, that The World of cricket will never bypass MS Dhoni’s Play and achievements easily.

The list is extended to some more pages, these numbers shows how Mahi’s helicopter fly on the cricket ground for 16 years. Dhoni have the crystal-clear knowledge about the cricket, even the decision as captain also taken based on the cricket knowledge.
Though MS Dhoni is a batsman, he is a night mere for all batsman because no batsman was cool while dhoni is behind the stumps. Many Lightning Stumping were blinked from MSD army green gloves. MSD also a tonic for bowlers especially spinners to get words full of hope and perfect guidance to take wickets and restrict the runs. Some time many of the cricket lovers including myself feel DRS means Dhoni Review System, Because MSD observe the ball pitching in the wickets and predict how it will strike the stumps. That why all the players including bowler asking Dhoni’s review for appealing.
Mahi life is true inspiration for all not only cricketers, he shows the world once again hard work never fails from a journey from Ticket Collect to World’s most successful Captain. Many of you loves Dhoni for his calm and shuttled character. He always behaves matured in the ground and off the ground. Mahi gives us many unforgettable moments some are listed below just relive the moments while readings the lines.
