Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unarguably the most successful captain that the country has produced in the history of cricket. While the fans know everything about the former Indian skipper, wouldn’t it be interesting to know how the cricketer from 2005, who had just announced his arrival to international cricket would converse with the experienced campaigner from 2021, who has achieved everything in the sport. While it sounds like a dream, it has been made possible on the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of India’s historic World Cup triumph in 2011.
A heartwarming conversation
In a video released by Gulf Oil India, they have created a scenario where Dhoni from 2005 is actually talking to Dhoni from 2021. The conversation between the two personalities is so heartwarming to watch. While there is a youngster on one side who is nervously reflecting on his famous 183-run knock against Sri Lanka in 2005, the experienced campaigner on the other hand calmly makes him understand about the importance of right attitude, planning and execution.
MS Dhoni reveals his favourite innings
The young Mahi is very curious to know about the favourite innings that the former Indian skipper played in his illustrious career. The 39-year-old responds without hesitation, “World Cup finals. The joy of finishing the match was something else.” While the young Mahi is delighted to know that India won the world cup in 2011, the experienced cricketer praises the youngster and says, “Your hard-work is what made that innings possible.” To add to it, MSD also asks the 24-year-old to make a sacrifice of leaving butter chicken, soft drinks and milk shakes for a consistent, disciplined and successful career ahead.
