Mahendra Singh Dhoni is as calm and unruffled a sportsman on the field as he is self-effacing off it. But ‘brute strength’, ‘murderous form’ and ‘a man possessed’ were some of the phrases that came to mind when, on 5 April 2005 in Visakhapatnam, he exploded onto international consciousness by becoming the first regular Indian keeper to score a one-day century. On that day, ‘Mahi’ Dhoni transformed from a boy hailing from an obscure small town to a sports legend with the aura of a rock star. How that legend came to be—and grew from game to game—is told here by noted sportswriter Gulu Ezekiel in his crackling but measured prose. Captain Cool is the story of M.S. Dhoni, Indian cricket’s poster boy. It is also the heartwarming account of the boy from Ranchi who grew into a worldwide icon and won for India the World T20 in 2007, the world number one Test ranking in 2009, the World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy in 2013. Now in the autumn of his career, Mahi continues to be an inspiration to his teammates and millions of his fans
