Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian wicket-keeper batsman, comes across as one of the finest cricketing talents of the country. The former captain is the only skipper in the world to win all the four major ICC trophies. A major reason behind his massive success is his cool nature.
Be it his batting in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 final or his shrewd leadership in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 final, Dhoni has demonstrated his ability to counter pressure better than many. Known as the ‘Captain Cool’ or the ‘Ice Man’, the skillful cricketer has helped India win many pressure moments by keeping a cool head.
Recently, the veteran cricketer opened up on his ability to handle tough situations. The 38-year old said that he is like everyone else and feels frustration.
But, what works for him is his ability to control emotions better than others. Dhoni added that thinking about the next move also helps him to control emotions and focus more on the game. Nevertheless, he admitted that cricket being a team game mostly requires people to perform well as a unit.
