"It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Match'd with an ag├Ęd wife, I mete and dole Unequal laws unto a savage race, That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me."

Mahendra "King" Dhoni

In the beginning, there was God.
But God chased a wide delivery,
And ended up back in the pavilion.
In came Dhoni... the rest is history!
Showing no mercy...

When Mahendra Singh Dhoni, our man from Jharkhand, walked in, the mood of the Sri Lankans was nothing but jubilant, because they had just removed Sachin Tendulkar. But over the next three hours the rapturous crowd at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, and all over India, went crazy as Dhoni's coronation was underway, with 10 sixes and 15 fours. His innings of 183, an exhibition of raw power, stunned Sri Lanka, and announced the "advent". For once, an Indian wicket-keeper stumped the opposition with his bat.

A new king is crowned

What a "shot"!
