His team - the Chennai Super Kings - retained their title in the IPL by consigning the Royal Challengers Bangalore to a crushing 58-run defeat in the finals of the tournament. Again the beaming face of Mahi appeared in the sheen off the trophy as he gained one more accolade for his glistening closet.
It is mystery how he inspires any side he is captaining to pull off extraordinary performances in crunch matches. He may complain of the overburdened itinerary that the BCCI dishes out, but when it comes to surging to another victory, Mahi is always game.
Looking at his track record as skipper, one would conclude that this man is next to invincible. His very debut as captain yielded a global championship title - the World Twenty20, a victory that couldn't have been more timely seeing as it came in the same year that India were knocked out in the first round of 50-over World Cup.
Then he ascribed numero uno status to the Indian Test team, leading it on successful campaigns in home and host country. From T20 world champions to the Number One Test side to India's ODI World Cup triumph to now the Champions League cup and IPL4,, Mahi has etched his name in the annals of Indian cricket as the most celebrated and successful captain ever. Your fans holler three cheers for you!
