Leading a national cricket team is no small feat, but what speaks further of the ­credentials of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is his quintessential calm, composure and mettle while facing a tense situation.This, however, doesn’t reveal much about how Dhoni is off the field or how he ended up being a part of the national team.
Giving an insight on how Dhoni transformed from an obscure small town boy to a sports legend, is the book, Captain Cool, by renowned sports writer, Gulu Ezekiel.
The text begins with a prologue and later runs into 15 ­chapters tracing the journey from his ­formative days to his stint as the captain of the Indian national cricket team.
The reader is gripped by the facts and figures used by the author to support his statements and ­arguments.
Overall, the book is an ­interesting read for those who are passionate about the sport, as also the die-hard fans of Mahi.
