Leadership is the capability to translate vision into reality. The leader knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. The name Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the perfect example of a leader. Name the trophy, and he has it on India’s name. Ashwin, India’s one of the prime bowlers, had once quoted that if Dhoni asks him to die on the field, he will do so with his eyes closed.
