MS Dhoni is one of the oldest and most humble players among the current Indian Cricket Team. Back in the days when he was the captain of Indian Team, fans used to call him “Captain Cool”. Even recently he was in the news for his simplicity.
MS Dhoni turned water boy and served drinks to the team while they were playing match against Ireland team.
Those who have closely noticed Dhoni must have observed this many times. In the tournaments that Team India won under Dhoni, he used to disappear soon after receiving the cup. During an interview with Scroll, MS Dhoni answered the question and we must say you will start respecting him even more after reading it. He said-
“Well, don’t you think, it is unfair that you play a team sport where the captain goes and receives the trophy? It’s like an over exposure. Let’s say that you already have an over exposure of like 15 seconds and after that I don’t really think that you are needed to be there. Of course, we all like the celebration and you want to be part of it. But it’s not like that you have to be with the trophy.”
He further added-
“That’s why, in a team environment, we try to make it as simple as possible. And as I said, 15 seconds of over exposure has already happened, so no point clinging onto the trophy. Also, maybe if you don’t spend enough time with the trophy, you get a chance or you want to win another one so that you get another of those 15 seconds.”
He is truly a heart winner.
