Indian cricket buffs and millions of M S Dhoni fans around the world have begun singing the new anthem, a beautiful foot-tapping number, “M S Dhoni number seven...”, sung energetically by West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, on his birthday. Bravo’s song has already gone viral in social media. His song beautifully depicts the life story of a small town boy who braved all odds to become one of the greatest cricket captains India has seen. The punch lines and the video with foot-tapping music are really a treat to hear and watch.
Dhoni, as the song depicts, is truly the most successful Indian skipper who has won every major ICC trophy in all formats and the only captain to do so. The song, as Bravo says, is for a man who redefined the modern cricket, be it captaincy, wicket keeping, batting and field arrangement. Besides, the support that Dhoni gave to his playmates is also well known. The song also shows how sports can connect human beings, especially during trying times like these. With the pandemic depriving every one of sports and entertainment, the song comes as a ray of hope.
