Forget about the form and records, MS Dhoni, the former captain of Team India is certainly a harbinger of success. Starting from the t20 world cup, there’s nothing that India failed to achieve in his tenure. While his astounding performances at the end of every chase cannot be missed.
One cannot forget the way he amassed that amazing sixer in the World Cup final in 2011, well, how possibly one can expect a sixer as the winning shot in World Cup final, but, Dhoni did it. Such things are possible for Dhoni and those are the things that made him a stand-out all the way.
In terms of wicket-keeping, Dhoni is lightning quick, in batting, his striking capabilities and strengths are unmatched. In the current generation of cricketers, MS Dhoni arguably has the best cricketing mind and IQ. His decision-making ability in various situations was questioned by cricket pundits. However, he was the one who passed with flying colors, defying odds.
Now, he thought of giving it back what the cricket gave him. Did you get it?
Two-time World Cup-winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today inaugurated his first global cricket academy in the bustling metropolis. As a budding cricketer, who would not like to be under his umbrella? To move his legend forward, Indian cricketer MS Dhoni unveiled his first global cricket academy in the effervescent city of Dubai.
The academy, jointly launched by Dubai-based Pacific Sports Club and Aarka Sports Club, has been in operation for a couple of months at the Springdale School in Al Quoz. The facility named the MS Dhoni Cricket Academy (MSDCA) will have coaches from India to train the wards.
The sparkling cricket academy comprises of four turfs, three cement and three matted pitches, spin and swing bowling machine, safety nets, lights for night practice, in-house sports shop for quality cricket gear and video analysis. It will also organize regular matches and will also field squads in tournaments to enable trainees to gain vital match practice.
Speaking about his association with the academy, Dhoni said: “I am delighted to be a part of this venture and will contribute in every way possible to make it a success. It has been my dream to contribute to the game in every way possible. This is the first step in that direction. The enthusiasm of the trainees is what will drive this venture.”

Parvez Khan, the director of Pacific Ventures, commented, “The academy is in perfect shape and it will be a big thing for UAE cricket to have an academy run by a legend like Dhoni.”
With several veterans like Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh already owning academies within India, it isn’t surprising for Dhoni to be out of the box and owning a first of a kind global cricket academy.
