Majestical, magical MS Dhoni becomes 3rd time winner of IPL
What an exciting final it was! Well, MS Dhoni once again emerged as a total winner as his team clinched the 11th IPL trophy after defeating SRH at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday night.

CSK by featuring in Sunday's final match created another record by becoming the first ever team to play the finals of the IPL for the seventh time. Apart from the above, MSD has now also equaled Rohit Sharma's record of lifting the IPL trophy for Mumbai Indians thrice – in 2011, 2013 and 2017.

His tactics in this tournament remained brilliant. MS Dhoni has once again proved that he is not only the best finisher but has tremendous capability of leading the team upfront.

Apart from this, on a personal note, I strongly feel that his ability to develop a wonderful chemistry with his teammates has also paved way in infusing confidence among them. Dhoni is a great cricketer; right from his immaculate field placements to trying new upcoming bowlers, every move makes him stand apart.

He is known for utilizing his resources in a most optimised manner. As a wicket-keeper captain having a rich on-field experience, he is able to sucessfully guide and glide his bowlers through his valuable tips and and advice. Likewise, while batting he is very often seen guiding his fellow batsmen as to how to negotiate the bowler.

MSD has his own aura and to maintain a strict discipline he never compromises on the standards of fielding and spares no one in case of a misfield or even slightest slackness on the part of any fellow fielder.

With his graceful presence in the dressing room, his teammates especially youngsters, learn a lot under his guidance. His judgment is so meticulous that most of the times the decisions taken by him on the field always yield positive results.

Despite his unparalleled demigod star status he is very humble and keeps a low profile and it appears that most of his fellow players see him more as an elder brother than a skipper who likes to dictate terms. Perhaps his best quality is that he knows how to keep cool even during the worst of scenarios. He is also the most dedicated, committed gentleman cricketer, who is respected by all. Although he has many records against his name, he is still not arrogant.

With this win MS Dhoni has managed to shut up his critics and made sure that he is rightly appreciated as a true legend of Indian cricket. We hope that he is selected in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup squad and manages to contribute substantially to the team.
