Three Cheers for MS Dhoni

I feared that the spirit had died
That “playing the game” was decried
Until MS Dhoni
Proved he was no phoney
And put ruthlessness to one side

Author notes

International sport is a multi billion pound/dollar/rupee business but today the Indian Cricket team, board, and their captain MS Dhoni showed that for them, it still has to be a sport first. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/14359723.stm .
