Dhoni, one day at a time

by Naked Cricket

He wasn’t good or bad
He wasn't happy or sad
He wasn't Mumbai or Delhi
He wasn't Prince or God
He was Dhoni

He just stood back
Back behind the stumps
And waited
And waited
And waited
And waited
And waited
For the days to unravel
Unravel themselves
One day at a time.

He wasn’t black or white
He was grey
He was yellow
He was blue
He was Dhoni

And as he greyed
He grew
Grew like a legend
Upon us
One white hair at a time
One day at a time
And those one days added to five
One day at a time.

One day
A selector asked to drop him
One day
A selector was asked instead
One day
He was unspoken
One day
He spoke in platitudes
One day
He was in court
And those one days added to five
One day at a time.

One day
He was T20 Midas
One day
He was World Cup Slayer
One Day
He was No. 1 of the Five Days
One Day
He lost too many days away
One Day
He was unseen
And those one days added to five
One day at a time.

He was Dhoni

One day
He was Mahendra Singh Dhoni
One day
He was MSD
One day
He was MS
One day
He was Mahi
One day

He was Dhoni.

One day
He stopped ten shy of a Hundred
One day
He stopped shy of a farewell
One day
He stopped shy of a speech
One day
He stopped shy of a Thank You
One day
He stopped it with a phone call
Because those one days never add to five
Not even one day at a time.

He was Dhoni.
India’s One Day Captain who retired from Test Cricket.
