Everyone vouches for captain cool’s confidence and leadership that make team India win. The way he shows magic in last overs of many matches marvels his presence of mind. We always see him smiling even in crucial situations. He always has plans and takes calculated risks.

Lead by example

Dhoni is not one of those who just lead without delivering. He gets his hands dirty and every time showcases what it takes to win, inspiring his team to follow him. The best captain of the Indian cricket team till date truly knows his hard work is the biggest inspiration for others.

Keep calm, I’m the captain

Calmness is Dhoni’s swag. He really knows how to keep his head firmly on his shoulders. This coolness has only helped the team in sticking together and performing under adverse situations. 

We before Me

The best trait Dhoni has shown so far has been giving credit to the whole team and taking the blame on himself. Only a man of courage knows how to do it. This essential trait makes him a winning leader. This builds mutual trust and respect.

Know thyself

A captain knows his best traits as well as worst ones. The way he arranges the batting order and makes on-the- spot decisions has paid off well. He has rediscovered and adapted himself in every
situation. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been quoted in the media earlier saying, “I believe in giving more than 100 percent on the field, and I don’t really worry about the result if there’s great commitment on the field. That’s victory for me.”
