MS Dhoni has been a hero for millions of Indians fans from the past ten years. The man with the Midas touch, who led India to victory in the ICC World Cup 2011, the World T20 2007, the Champions Trophy 2013, and the No.1 rankings in Test cricket.
As part of the children’s day celebrations, the former Indian skipper gave an interview to Shivangini Chaudhary, a young citizen journalist, who is currently studying in her 4th grade at The Shri Ram School, Vasant Vihar in New Delhi.
In an exclusive interview by ThePrint, Dhoni mentioned the importance of sports in his career. The Ranchi-born cricketer said that sport always appealed to him. Prior to cricket, he used to play in his school’s football team, where he was the goalkeeper.
Dhoni’s favourite subject
When asked about his favourite subject in school, the former Indian skipper replied, “That’s a difficult one! I was very good in Maths till class V, and after that algebra and everything came in, and I started playing cricket, so it became slightly tough. So, if I have to pick something, I would say I like Maths, the reason being I was good at it, and even after class VI, though I was quite bad, I loved geometry.”
While all the other school children crib about Math during their school days, Dhoni particularly enjoyed the subject that involves all the calculations and numbers something that has come to his aid as a cricketer as well.
