Mahendra Singh Dhoni is undoubtedly one of the great leaders the country has ever produced. The former India captain has been known for grooming the youngsters and showing them the right path throughout his career. Ahead of IPL 2021, Dhoni is back with his intellectual lessons for youngsters, but this time in a whole new avatar. 'Captain Cool' has taken the internet by storm in an exciting campaign #IndiaKaApnaMantra started by Star Sports for the upcoming season of the mega-tournament.
Lesson No. 1 - Laalach is cool
In the first teaser, Dhoni talks about Mumbai Indians' skipper Rohit Sharma who has already won 5 IPL titles and will be aiming for a record-breaking 6th title in 2021. MS Dhoni reflects on Hitman's hunger for winning and gives a new mantra for this year's Indian Premier League (IPL). The 39-year-old states, "Agar Laalach se jeetne ki bhookh badhti hai toh Laalach is cool."
Lesson No. 2 - Krodh bura nahi
In another video, Mahi addresses the anger of RCB skipper Virat Kohli which has helped him to win so many matches for his team, earning him the title of 'King'. Reflecting on how Kohli has used his anger in the right way on the field, Dhoni's new mantra is, "Krodh mein khokar koi jeet ko paa le, toh krodh bura nahi."
Notably, MS Dhoni says that both Kohli and Rohit will have their own unique mantras for this year's mega-tournament. The CSK skipper concludes by admitting that he doesn't know whose mantra will let their respective sides prevail in 2021.
