The young cricketer attributed Dhoni’s success in decision-making to his composed state of mind, allowing him to navigate pressure easily. Dhoni’s reputation for making wise choices, irrespective of the circumstances, has earned him immense respect among his peers and fans.

“I asked him, ‘Bhaiya kyu’ after the match, and he replied, ‘The way you were batting, all the fielders should have been much finer. That’s why I had put him a tad bit fine, and I was like I had never thought about it,” Iyer added.

MS Dhoni’s leadership and composure serve as a beacon of inspiration for aspiring cricketers worldwide.
