Quotes By MS Dhoni Which Will Give You An Insight About How He Looks At Cricket, Love And Life

How do you describe somebody like MS Dhoni in words?

He captains a country that treats cricket like a religion. Apart from being their best-ever captain, he is also the best finisher in the sport and one of the highest rated keepers. He has won a World Cup by hitting a six, he has won another by trusting a hitherto unknown player. He captains, bats and keeps, in all 3 formats, for club and country. And when he's not playing for either, he plays for India Cements; and there too, he captains, bats and keeps wickets. Let's just say, this guy loves cricket. It doesn't end there; cricket likes him too. He has conquered the world in T20s and ODIs, and in a week's time, he might just have done it twice.
