Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not very far to complete his 14 years in international cricket. Captain Cool holds many records in his name apart from that he witnesses the records of India’s premier players Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, and Rohit Sharma.
Yuvraj Singh six sixes, Sachin Tendulkar’s first double century in ODI, and Virat Kohli's 10,000 ODI runs and Rohit Sharma's first ODI double century are a few important moments that Dhoni witnessed from the Non-strikers end.
When these records were set MS Dhoni was present in the field on the other side at non-striker end. Recently when Virat Kohli completed his 10,000 ODI runs in Second ODI against West Indies and he became the fifth Indian batsmen and overall 13th Indian player to join the group of 10K runs members. At this crucial moment of Virat Kohli's career, Dhoni was present at Non Striker End.
Yuvraj Singh hit six sixes in six balls in the match against England in the 2007 T-20 World Cup. All-rounder Yuvraj Singh became the first-ever batsman to send six balls over the boundary in a row for the first time in a T20I. At the same time, Dhoni was batting with Yuvraj.
Sachin Tendulkar scored the first double hundred in ODIs. Tendulkar achieved the landmark against South Africa. He remains unbeaten and scored 200 in the match on 24 February 2010. Dhoni was present on the field when Sachin's 200 was completed.
MS Dhoni was playing on the field with Rohit Sharma when he scored his first double century against Australia. Rohit Sharma scored 209 runs against Australia in the match on November 2, 2013.
Hitman Rohit Sharma scored double centuries in ODI for three times. First, on 2nd November 2013 against Australia, he scored 209 runs. Second, on 13th November 2014 against Sri Lanka, he scored 264 runs. Third, on 13th December 2017 against Sri Lanka, he scored 208 runs.
Khaleel Ahmed, the left-arm fast bowler had performed brilliantly in Asia Cup 2018. In an interview, he said that he had a dream of playing under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and when MS Dhoni captained for a match in Asia Cup 2018, his dream came true.
When Dhoni left the captaincy, Khaleel Ahmed thought that he will never get a chance to play under the captaincy of Dhoni. At that time, he thought that his dream of playing under Dhoni’s captaincy will never come true.
When in a match of Asia Cup 2018 against Afghanistan, Captain Rohit Sharma and Vice Captain Shikhar Dhawan was at rest, Dhoni captained for the team.
Khaleel is very happy that his dream came true and he said that it was his destiny that MS Dhoni captained for the one match. It was the 2nd International match for Khaleel Ahmed and Dhoni gave him the chance to bowl in first over.
Khaleel also talked about his aim, he wants to be the main baller of the team. He said that he wants to be the baller whose name strikes first in the Captain’s mind whenever there is a need to clear out the opposite side.
Another thing that relates well with this match is as a captain it was the 200th match for MS Dhoni. The result of this interesting match was a tie but this match made Khaleel’s dream became reality.
Khaleel also got emotional when India won the Asia Cup 2018 Final against Bangladesh and MS Dhoni, the man of hearts, requested the captain Rohit Sharma to let the new player in the team hold the Asia Cup 2018 trophy. This gesture of MS Dhoni won many hearts and was very much appreciated by all.
MS Dhoni always gives chance to the young players to be in the limelight whenever his team won the match. MS Dhoni is one of the best captains of all the times.
