When Dhoni made his debut in ODI in Chittagong (Bangladesh), he was run out without opening his account. At the next ODI, he was caught while playing a pull shot. In the three-match series, he scored only 19 runs. But those who reposed trust in him knew that once he got going he would outshine all his colleagues. This was proved during the match against Pakistan at Vishakhapatnam in 2005. He made Pakistani bowlers look like club rookies and announced his arrival with 148 off 123 balls. It was Mahi all over.The book attempts a peek into Mahendra Singh Dhoni's persona that makes him an outstanding cricketer and a captain. Coming from Ranchi, a town not associated with cricket, to make it big at the international level was not an easy task. With quiet determination, he overcame one hurdle after another and achieved the captaincy of Team India in all three formats of the game. The book keeps the statistical details to a bare minimum and tries to present to Dhoni's fans several hitherto unknown or unpublicized facts related to his younger and struggling days, his temperament, his family, his beliefs and the changes he has brought to the dressing room atmosphere…. His story proves the axiom that champions do not depend on ideal conditions to reach to the top, they rather adapt themselves and overcome the conditions made available to them…. Indeed! this is the story of a local boy, who quietly dreamt big and went on to realize his dream…so that he has earned a permanent place in the history of Indian cricket, that too within such a short span.Printed Pages: 180.

Inhaltsangabe: This attempt at presenting a peek into Mahendra Singh Dhoni 's persona relies mostly on information relating to his early days, when he overcame, one hurdle after another with a quiet determination, to reach the most coveted spot in national cricket, that is captaincy of Team India, in all three formats of the game. Unlike other books, where statistical details flood the pages, here they have been kept to a bare minimum. The attempt is to enable Dhoni's fans to know several hitherto unknown or unpublicized facts related to his younger and struggling days, his temperament, his family, his beliefs and the changes he has brought to the dressing room atmosphere... his story proves the axiom that champions do not depend on ideal conditions to reach the top, they rather adapt themselves and overcome the conditions made available to them...Indeed! this is the story of a local boy, who quietly dreamt big and went on to realize his dream... earning a permanent place in the history of Indian cricket, that too within such a short span of time...
About the Author: With more than three decades of reporting experience on sports, especially cricket, and active involvement in cricket at the Ranchi and Jharkhand state levels, including manning selection committees, popular writer Arun Thakur first noticed Mahendra Singh Dhoni 'Mahi', the day he announced his presence in the interschool cricket final with a double century. He has kept track of his progress from (as every cricket fan would remember) the time he blasted the Pakistan team with a trademark Dhoni century at Vishakhapattanam on 5 April 2005, till today. Proximity to those close to Dhoni and information gathered and culled from them, provided some insight into the man that the local boy has grown into. Reticence comes naturally to him, hence he never lets his guard down in public... millions of fans and cricket experts know him as a person who does not lose his cool... he is the captain with the Midas touch. An attempt has been made to provide those pieces of information to his fans which hopefully will help them understand their idol better.
