MS Dhoni: Winning is everything.

A dramatic end to the 3-match test series against South Africa saw India level the series at Kanpur today.

Interestingly , Dhoni was standing in as captain in place of the injured Kumble. Dhoni came out trumps once again by winning his first test as captain and that too in 3 days. Dhoni led India to a win in the T20 world cup 7 months ago and also the CB ODI series in Australia about a month back.

Master at shorter version of cricket , he had to prove to the sceptics about his ability in the 5-day version. Dhoni did it effectively even with a weak bowling line-up and without Sachin’s presence who was out with a groin injury. Of course, the turning pitch at Kanpur helped and so did Ganguly’s stellar innings of 87 in the first innings. But finally, Dhoni’s ability to get the best out of everybody on field, his bold decision to let Bhajji open the bowling and his calm leadership ensured that the Future Cup does not go to South Africa.

Dhoni will probably go down in the future as the best cricket captain that India has ever had .

For the present, the future is here.
