MS Dhoni & YOUTH / APOSTLE PAUL & YOUTH
Happy Birthday MS Dhoni. Thank you for the gutsy decisions you made as captain. The decision to keep 22-year Virat Kohli in the playing XI with senior-to-him players like Yousuf Pathan in the 15 during the 2011 World Cup was gutsy. That helped Kohli on his road to greatness. Thank you for being brave enough in promoting Rohit Sharma as Opener in 2013. He is priceless for India in ODIs in that role as he has supremely shown in this World Cup - the Cup of 2019. You were an unselfish captain in the way you promoted youth in the team. I remember how Apostle Paul treated youth in his ministry team when I think of your captaincy. He called his young protege Timothy "my son whom I love" (I Tim. 4:17), "the one who carries on the work of the Lord just as I am" (I Cor. 16:10), "the one who served with me as a son with his father in the work of the Gospel" (Phil. 2:22).
