The earth is about 5 billion years old, and yet, somehow you managed to exist at a time to witness the miracle that MS Dhoni is! If that is not luck, we don't know what is. It's unbelievable how can a human being endure such sheer brilliance and greatness, at the same time, blanketed with utter humbleness.

And today, the miracle that had happened to Indian cricket back in 2004 is celebrating his 39th birthday!
