Book Review| Captain Cool: The MS Dhoni Story

The book does not have any narrative as such, and, instead, reads like a long, insightful match report. The book is at its strongest at the start. The book is peppered with interesting nuggets like this one: Dhoni developed a unique technique by playing with a tennis ball on yard pitches in Kharagpur, where he moved in for his first job as a railway ticket collector. On these pitches, bowlers consistently bowled yorkers and Dhoni had to learn to use his shoulders and forearms to dig the ball out-a skill that helps him today. What is most enjoyable is viewing cricket through the prism of a wicket keeper. We are so used to stats about batting averages and wickets, but what about stumpings and catches?
