Cricketers which are famous are Sachin Tendulker, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat kholi, Yuvraj Singh, and few more. My favorite player and who excels within cricket community is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Bollywood has made a biopic on Mahendra Singh Dhoni named M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story which shows us the story of his life. He was born in middle-class family in Rannchi. His father was a pump operator which used to be responsible to water the playground which was majorly used for cricket practice. As M.S. Dhoni grew up his sports teacher at school sees him playing football, he was the goalkeeper so the teacher askes him to join the cricket team. M.S. Dhoni initially was wicketkeeper, but he was always interested in batting.
After few cricket matches he was allowed for batting he was very good at it. The helicopter shot is the exceptional thing in M.S. Dhoni’s batting. He scores a very good run by helicopter shots. In the movie it also shows that he learned this skill of batting from his friend when he was practicing for national under 19 cricket matches. M.S. Dhoni’s father wanted him to take a government job and get settled and he even got one after participating in various matches and selected for the job of ticket conductor in the Railway, but he was not that happy doing that job, so he left the job after few years. Cricket world cup was held in 2007, I was in 10th standard and I loved cricket, so we were watching the match live on air and the match was so intense that I lost that hope that was going to win.
M.S. Dhoni was the caption of the team, India wins the World cup. That was the turning point of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s life. He became very popular and everyone loved him. He develops a new team with new player which was a bit issue and controversy about the old and famous player were kicked off of the team. Another world cup after that was in 2011, which was also won by Indian in the caption ship of M. S. Dhoni. He has played a very important role in the 2011 world cup. India needed 4 runs and 1 ball which was almost impossible, and India could have lose the match, but Dhoni Swang his bat and the ball was out of the boundary and he scored and won the match by 2 runs. Every cricket fan would be knowing him.
