4 Life Lessons Dhoni Our “Captain Cool” has taught Us!

On the 15th of August 2020, Saturday all our hearts broke, an era came to an end! MS Dhoni the captain cool, the ultimate finisher, CSK’s true king announced his retirement. We knew it was going to come but we were never ready and still cannot come to terms with it!

On his Instagram handle, MS Dhoni posted a video of his journey with an iconic song “Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar Hoon”. Upon seeing this video our hearts melted and I still don’t know how we will be able to see cricket without MSD in it.

MSD – The Crowd’s Favorite

Seeing MSD was seeing hope, seeing him we knew the team was in good hands. When Dhoni entered the field the crowds used to go crazy, the entire stadium was filled with echoes of one word – “Dhoni!” “Dhoni!” “Dhoni!”

Mahendra Singh is one cricketer, who has shown great sportsmanship and is also a personality that inspires us in all aspects. There are many things he has taught us along with his exceptional batting, wicket-keeping, and captaincy. This lad from Ranchi with the NO.7 blue jersey started with a duck but ended his journey with centuries, trophies, and millions of die-hard fans.

The one with the “helicopter shot”, the one who loves serving the Indian army and the one who is known for his humility has taught us numerous lessons. He surely is a personality that everyone should aspire to become!

“I don’t regret anything in life, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”

The forever Indian Captain – MSD

There are cricketers all around the world, who have their individual style and have their own fan base. Dhoni is one sportsman who has fans all over the world and his fans don’t just love him for his game but also for his way of life.

Here are 4 life lessons MS Dhoni has taught us:

1. Failure is just the beginning of success.

In his first international ODI match MSD got dismissed in the first ball! He faced a lot of heat and hate from the Indian fans. He did not let this match decide his future. In every opportunity he got in the future he sure didn’t disappoint and there was no looking back! It was only up, up and up!

“Till the full stop doesn’t come, the sentence is not complete.”

2. Keeping Calm in High-pressure situations

“Thala” was infamously known as the captain cool. Why? In nail-biting matches, he kept his calm and instead of worrying or getting anxious, he would plan what to do next!

He taught us that staying composed in tough times was the key to making correct decisions. This attitude of Dhoni’s made him one of the best captains ever.


3. He knows his priorities, and keeps them above everything else.

Many times we have heard him in interviews talking about how the country comes first and then everything else. This shows true passion and dedication towards his game.

We learn that when you truly want to achieve something nothing is impossible and no barrier can stop you. His priorities were sorted and his goals and vision were very clear. Like a horse, I might say he only saw the finish line and nothing else.

“That’s what happens when you get hit by bails, lucky only had to keep wickets with blurred vision and pain. “

MS Dhoni after an eye injury, he continued playing with blurred vision.

“You don’t play for the crowd, you play for the country!”

4. Dhoni has his own style and is a game changer.

I remember vividly, how in every match if India was losing my mom would console me by saying “Dhoni is still yet to bat, he will change the game don’t worry beta!”

He planned his own strategies and they all mostly worked thus he is a successful captain and has so many trophies in his kitty. His iconic helicopter shot would lead the crowds roaring, while some judged his wicket keeping style and techniques he showed exceptional results!

When a game seemed impossible, Dhoni made it possible! Everyone remembers his last winning six which got India international glory.


As a big fan of MS Dhoni, not just of his game but also of his personality it really saddens me to see him retiring but we all know that ‘All good things come to an end”. It is indeed difficult to come in terms with this but we will definitely see him roaring in IPL! Playing for my home team “Chennai Super Kings” Until then keep the whistles coming…

I needed a box of tissue after seeing the above video, I am sure you will need one too πŸ™‚
