Coronavirus has disrupted the world of sports. With no sporting action happening at the moment, sports stars are spending time on social media and reaching out to sports fanatics and their fans.

India's stylish batter Jemimah Rodrigues too joined the trend and went live on Instagram to take questions from her fans and reveled interesting bits about her on-field and off-field life.

One question that popped up during the course of the live session was about Indian one male captain that Jemimah would have liked to play under. The 19-year old cricketer was quick to respond and chose two-time World Cup winning for Indian captain MS Dhoni.

Dhoni during the course of his career won acclaims as being an 'ice-cool' captain. His ability to stay calm in most tense of situations and to think off his feet, has impressed fans and experts alike.

And it is these abilities that made Jemimah choose Dhoni.

“None other than MS Dhoni. You have grown up watching him and what he did in the World Cups, winning those two World Cups. We have heard so much in interviews and so many people say that they have never seen a captain like MS Dhoni. So, it’s always like a fantasy that one day I’ll get to play under him,” explained Jemimah.

It has been more than three years since Dhoni relinquished India's captaincy. Dhoni hasn't played international cricket since India's exit from the 2019 Cricket World Cup. But Dhoni's legacy as one of the greatest Indian skipper lives on.

Most prominent of Dhoni's achievements have been the T20 World Cup win in 2007, 50-over World Cup in 2011 and Champions Trophy win in 2013.
