Story – When Keshav Ranjan Banerjee spotted wicket keeping talent in Mahendra Singh Dhoni during Dhoni’s school days

Keshav Ranjan Banerjee was a senior sports teacher at the Jawahar Vidya Mandir School Ranchi where Mahendra Singh Dhoni used to study. The year was 1993 when he first spotted Dhoni when the future Indian captain was playing in a football match as a goalkeeper. Another reason why Banerjee wanted Dhoni to try his hands at wicket-keeping was that the regular wicketkeeper was not present. It was a decision that not only changed Dhoni’s life but also the fate of Indian cricket. Little did Banerjee know that he was not inviting any another boy to keep wickets for the school team but he was inviting a guy, who would go on to become one of the best wicketkeepers the world has ever seen.
