Ever since M S Dhoni got a circumstantial chance to become a captain of India for 20-20 world cup in South Africa, it must have surprised Dhoni himself also. Dhoni is a very lucky person too. He won that 20-20 world cup, in similar condition in which he got captaincy. Cricket fans were very very angry with senior players, especially India’s dismal performance in 2007 world cup in West Indies. Fans wanted young players, under young captain. There were three choice for selectors, Sehwag, Yuvraj and Dhoni. Sehwag was out of form. Yuvraj was not considered a serious contender, due to his indifferent behavior, hence Dhoni got a chance to become captain of India.In South Africa he won two group matches, one each against Pakistan and England. Against Pakistan India won, on the basis of “ball out” and against England, due to that famous Yuvraj’s six sixes in a Stuart Board’s over( Yuvraj scored 14 ball 58 runs). Even in the final India won against Pakistan by mere 5 runs, Pakistan lost that match due to nonsensical batting by Pakistani batsman, particularly by Misbah. In a nutshell, that 20-20 world cup victory was not achieved due to Dhoni’s leadership skill, but was won by some individual brilliance of Yuvraj, Gambhir and Sehwag, and also bit of luck factor and also due to mistakes by opposite side. Indian media at that very moment started, projecting him as a future captain. Dhoni is a smart guy, he show a opportunity and he grabbed it with both hands.
