As the former and the most decorated captain of India hung his boots on 15th August, social media deluged with farewell tweets about Dhoni. The nation was unable to digest the fact that India’s most legendary captain will no longer be seen in the national colours and kept on rekindling their halcyon memories of the Indian wicket-keeper batsman.
Mahindra group chairman, Anand Mahindra, a fervent user of Twitter decided to take to the micro-blogging site in order to articulate his emotions about the Indian captain. He shared his experience of noticing the Indian captain for the first time and also spoke about the lessons that he learnt from the big man hailing from Ranchi.
The first memory iterated by Mahindra was his noticing of Dhoni’s long hair and the ripples that it has created across the industry. The chairman tweeted, “Much has been said about what #Dhoni brought to the game. I’m no expert on cricket & I remember I 1st noticed him when my mother pointed him out on TV intrigued by his hairstyle. He reminded us that to make an impact: a) Be authentic b) Be bold/take risk c) Stand out. #Monday”.

Sharing a video of his glittering cricket career, Dhoni thanked all his fans for the immense love and support which they have showered upon their favourite Mahi.
Captain Cool led Indian in a whopping 199 matches out of which India won 110 while suffered defeat in 74 of them. The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman led India in 60 Tests out of which he could only manage 27 Test victories.
Under his captaincy, India went on to win the ICC T-20 World Cup in 2007, the ICC World Cup in 2011 and finally the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013. These were the major highlights of his career as alongside these triumphs, he also went on to notch up numerous series in the subcontinent and also had his fair bit of glory overseas.
