The game of cricket is the bread winner for Mahendra Singh Dhoni as he continued in his own vein in the last game as skipper with scintillating stroke play and his customary big hits to the fence. In his farewell match as captain at the Brabourne Stadium he enlivened the ground with his firebrand of cricket. The crowd came for one last time as he led India A side out with customary style. Dhoni showed exuberance as a wicket-keeper with his fine sense of tapping the ball towards the wickets while receiving a throw from outfield, which did help Team India to get good number of run outs in the past. He was cool and composed when success was achieved or when ultimately his team lost by three wickets in a close encounter. He made a match of it with his all round skills and resigned as a skipper in style. We will miss Mahi ways, who masterminded and scripted many wins by leading the team from the front and marshalling his side effectively from behind the wicket. He fired all his cylinders in the last match and made his name as captain courageous and proved that he is a captain cool when the chips were down.
