Hearing the name of a great cricketer at events and talks shows related to cricket is nothing special. But when one hears the name of a renowned cricketer being taken at a beauty pageant, it indeed makes it a special experience. Recently, Roshni Sheoran, a runner-up at the Miss Diva 2018 came up with MS Dhoni’s name when asked about the contributions made by our country’s legends towards the nation.

Dhoni, who has led India to win two world titles in cricket – in T20Is in 2007 and ODIs in 2011 –  is nearing the end of an illustrious career but he still has a revered position in public space. The 37-year-old cricketer is often appreciated for his cool approach towards the game and also being a responsible tax-paying citizen of the country.

Dhoni has qualities of a great leader

“He has the qualities that a great leader should possess. Firstly, he is the ‘captain cool’. He can take situations in a calm way. Secondly, he always encourages his teammates to okay better and that’s teamwork. The third one being he always helps others,” Roshni told the judges while explaining the reason for her admiration towards the cricketer after she was asked a question by model-actor Malaika Arora.

Judges Sushant Singh Rajput and Shilpa Shetty, who are known for their love for the game, were impressed with the answer. Rajput has even portrayed the iconic cricketer in a latter’s biopic which was released in 2016.

Dhoni still remains India’s most successful captain in all three formats of the game. He has won every major tournament in the game and recently captained India in the 200th match in Asia Cup against Afghanistan. This year, the veteran also led the Chennai Super Kings to their third Indian Premier League title and he was also in a good batting form. The man’s modest approach to the ground is something that has won him several admirers over the years.
