Dhoni Reveals Why He Hands Over the Trophy to Youngsters

MS Dhoni is regarded as one of the best captains India has ever produced in the history of the sport because of his ability to read the game beforehand and leading the team to innumerable successes.

Cricket news: Dhoni always prefers to stay in the background of the team photo

His ability to remain calm in many difficult situations has become a benchmark for the other players as well. He is the only captain in the history of cricket to have won all the coveted trophies of ICC.

Despite being such a legendary player, he leads a simple life and his simplicity has won the hearts of all his teammates as well as his fans.

His simplicity can be unparalleled as recently when he was rested in the second T20I game against Ireland, he even carried drinks for his teammates.

When he was at his helm, he had won many trophies, but seldom was he seen posing with the trophy. Moreover during the team photo he had always preferred to perish in the background.

Recently the man himself has revealed the reason for his doing so and this will definitely garner more respect from his fans.

In a recent interview with Scroll, Dhoni has said that it is unfair that the captain will get all the exposure despite the game being a team sport. This is why he prefers handing the trophy to his teammates and staying away from the limelight.

“Well, don’t you think, it is unfair that you play a team sport where the captain goes and receives the trophy? It’s like an overexposure. Let’s say that you already have an overexposure of like 15 seconds and after that, I don’t really think that you are needed to be there. Of course, we all like the celebration and you want to be part of it. But it’s not like that you have to be with the trophy,” he said.

He also further added that the overexposure of those 15 seconds is enough for him and after that stipulated time there is no need of keeping the trophy with himself.

“That’s why, in a team environment, we try to make it as simple as possible. And as I said, 15 seconds of overexposure has already happened, so no point clinging onto the trophy. Also, maybe if you don’t spend enough time with the trophy, you get a chance or you want to win another one so that you get another of those 15 seconds,” Mahi added.
