As one reads the title, its anyone’s guess what I am talking about.
M S Dhoni, the Imperfect Cricketer who went on to rule the world of cricket hung his boots on Aug 15, 2020 at 1929 hrs.
Dhoni embodies one of the finest blends of –

- Just enough aggression
- Just enough cricketing skills
- Just enough discipline
- Just enough team play
- Just enough innovation
- Just enough fitness
- Just enough political acumen
- Just enough opportunities to showcase his skills
- But a never ending quench to excel despite knowing his limitations
The world had been entertained over the years with an excellent judgment of this blend while squatting behind the three stumps.
No technology or automation or artificial intelligence can replace this kind of blend.
Indian cricket legends like Sachin, Dravid, Kapil Dev, Sehwag, Gavaskar, Vengsarkar and many more such were known for their one specialist skill. But Dhoni was a specialist in none but excelled in a combo of things to give a perfect recipe for success.
Even your parting was just enough adieu to your fans…
